well not to be unhelpful, but have you tried upgrading?  this is an old
version, and you should probably install either 8.3.1 or 9.2.0.

it's possible that bind and / or your machine have been compromised.
i thought a later version came with 4.4 - did you have
NO_BIND=       true
in /etc/make.conf?

it may be a pain to remove all the old binaries if you install from
source in /usr/local/*.

hopefully someone can give a more helpful answer.
