patch file for dns/bind99 or dns/bind910

The purpose of this patch is to fix two very minor annoyances.

  1.  If named.conf is moved in /etc/rc.conf with a line such as
      named_conf=/etc/namedb/named.conf, then rndc-confgen creates a
      key in the /etc/namedb but /usr/local/etc/rc.d/named restart or
      reload won't use that key file.  The reload will fail, but the
      restart falls back to using kill.

  2.  The second problem is that if a rndc.conf file is used and put
      in /etc/namedb, rndc won't find it.  It is necessary to use an
      rndc.conf file if running named in a jail, where there is no address or if running IPv6 only and in other
      circumstances, such as if it is desirable to reload remotely
      (although an ssh command also solves this).

The change is simply to load up a rndc_flags variable and use it in
the two places where rndc is used.

btw- there seems to be a non-ascii character in the comment on line
188 after the string "but ${named_program}".

Patch is attached.

Note that if you have /usr/local/etc/rc.d/named, you're running 10.1+ and you do not have a /etc/namedb, your BIND config file should be in /usr/local/etc/namedb.

  When named.conf was placed somewhere else than %%ETCDIR%%, rndc would stop
