	BIND 9 is setup to be build and tested as a ordinary user.
	You only need to be root to configure the test interfaces
	and to do the final install.

	On Linux named drops root's abilities to override file
	permissions so when you extract the tarball as root you get
	files/directories with non root ownerships which named
	cannot write to.
