	Firstly why are you installing a version that is two maintenance
	releases behind current (9.2.5 / 9.3.1)?

	Secondly you need to create named.conf, rndc.conf etc.
	There is no way we can second guess what your configuration
	requirements are.  rndc-confgen will help with rndc.conf.

	Note this should be all documented.  If it is not documented
	complain the the people creating the package as it is included
	in the source we ship.
