Hi Coert,

yes that is correct , you have to write your own script.

A Guide for FreeBSD can bei found here:
It worked fine for me. I did it for bind 9.9 though.

My rc-script  (/usr/local/etc/rc.d/bind99)  looks like this:

. /etc/rc.subr
load_rc_config $name
run_rc_command "$1"

Done that you can activate bind by setting the following in /etc/rc.conf

bind99_flags="-c /usr/local/etc/named.conf"

Don't forget to create your named.conf
