You had a lot of issues in your message. IMO they make it clear that you 
can benefit from the better testing provided by the latest version 
(which is 9.9.3-P2, btw). You will definitely be better off fixing those 
errors. You can compile the latest version before installing it, and use 
the named-compilezone and named-checkzone from the newer version before 
you complete the upgrade process.

Regarding your DNSSEC problems, you should really consider the 
auto-dnssec maintain option, which will prevent the need for your 
homegrown automated system (which apparently has issues), and is one of 
the chief benefits of the 9.9 branch.

hope this helps,
