Hi BIND users on MacOS,

it looks like the upgrade to MacOS X 10.9 "Mavericks" removes
BIND. Early reports also indicate that the upgrade process also removes
the BIND configuration file "/etc/named.conf" and all zonefiles in
"/var/named". It happend on my machine, and there are reports coming in
from other users, but I need to confirm this on a lab environment.

The Men & Mice BIND MacOS X installers at currently fail on MacOS X
10.9, because /var/named is not there. I'm working on updating the Men &
Mice packages to work on MacOS X 10.9.

Best regards

Carsten Strotmann
