Go to 9.2
It compiles and installes easy.

I'm running 4.4 and apart from a resources problem caused by shoutcast, it
runs fine.

This is my config setup. (seems to be native to FreeBSD

../configure  --prefix=/usr \
                --enable-libbind \
                --sysconfdir=/etc/namedb \

I don't think 9.2 is in the ports tree yet..... but it compiles no worries.
goes straight into place, and has a checkconfig script as well.
