What does the port version not do that you need ?

If you had installed the port, it would have told you that:

*   You will need to make sure that you have the following line      *
*   in your /etc/rc.conf in order to have the startup script         *
*   run the named version from the port:                             *
*                                                                    *
*   named_program="/usr/local/sbin/named"                            *

| /etc/rc.d/named: WARNING: failed to start named

Have you tried running it manually to see what it says ?
