I don't know what's "standard". I would just change the path in

Also, it looks like the package changes the default path for
${DESTETC} to "/usr/pkg/etc", so you may need to make
"/usr/pkg/etc/named.conf" a link to "/etc/namedb/named.conf" in order
to let "/usr/pkg/sbin/ndc reload" do what it's supposed to do (rather
than "/etc/named.conf"). Try it.
