	This has been discussed on -questions several times, check the
archives. Personally I don't recommend it. It's just as easy to use the
existing mechanisms in rc.conf to start the proper version at boot time.
If you're concerned about cow-orkers starting the wrong one, set the no
bind option in /etc/make.conf and replace /usr/sbin/named with a script
like this:


echo "Hey, didn't I tell you to start named in /usr/local?"

	Sounds like a good reason not to do this. :)
