	Well I hope you didn't use a literal "PREFIX" as it is
	supposed to be replaced by a path.

	No.  But don't forget to do it after the install before
	restarting named. 

	Also I suggest that you run named-checkconf and named-checkzone
	over your existing configuration and correct any errors reported
	*before* you install.  named-checkconf and named-checkzone can
	be found in bin/check.

	Don't forget to update you start up scripts to point to named
	rather than in.named.
