I'm not the only one! Whew, I thought I was losing my mind.
I have rngd and haveged running and there is large pool of entropy and I still can't get newer versions of bind to start. Very frustrating.

I found that link previously and tried it. It didn't complain about that
not being a valid setting, but it didn't change the outcome. I'm
beginning to believe I may just have to upgrade to CentOS 7. It needs to
be done at some point anyway, I just didn't want to do it now.

Try setting `random-device "/dev/urandom";` in `named.conf`.
