6 years on... It seems we want to rmdir cache, and chown named:named
etc/namedb, chmod 775 etc/namedb? (i.e., edit etc/mtree/{NetBSD.dist,special})

On a related note, I was looking at bind 9.5 "empty zones", and was
surprised to find

     * 127.IN-ADDR.ARPA

in the list at /usr/share/doc/html/bind9/arm/Bv9ARM.ch06.html

This suggests that our named.conf wants to have

zone "" {
        type master;
        file "loopback.v6";

rather than

zone "127.IN-ADDR.ARPA" {
        type master;
        file "127";

and change the name of the loopback.v6 file to something less v6 specific
like loopback, or localhost-rev?
