Thanks to Carsten and Men and Mice for doing this.

I usually maintain the latest BIND on my Mac using MacPorts.  It looks
like you can still do that on Mavericks, but there some work
you have to do--MacPorts doesn't currently support Mavericks out of the
box.  The good news is that it looks like you can still download a
supported version of xcode for Mavericks.
