Use pkg_info to see which pkg you have now.

Here's what's currently in pkgsrc:
bind96/Makefile:BIND_VERSION=   9.6-ESV-R5-P1
bind97/Makefile:BIND_VERSION=   9.7.4-P1
bind98/Makefile:BIND_VERSION=   9.8.1-P1

I can't say if a binary pkg will be ready for your platform in time
for this security update, but you can definitely download pkgsrc and
build whatever you need.  (I only have netbsd 5, or I would make one
for you)

Then use 'make package' to generate binary pkgs of your own and update
your system as needed.
