(I removed pkgsrc-users@ so as not to cross-post.)

Yes, change it to match how the rest of pkgsrc works.  No, it's
not necessary to keep some special setting for NetBSD because there
shouldn't be anything special about the sysconfdir setup for NetBSD
as opposed to other platforms.  Just make your change for all of
the bind packages and bump the PKGREVISIONs.
