I hate to break it to you (I guess?), but it is. I did it on my
CURRENT box for testing and it clobbered the old BIND quite nicely.
Before,

  bubbles# ls -l /usr/sbin/named
  -r-xr-xr-x 1 root wheel 501408 Jan 18 13:17 /usr/sbin/named

After,

  bubbles# !ls
  ls -l /usr/sbin/named
  -rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 595752 Jan 30 01:22 /usr/sbin/named

Like I said, PREFIX rocks.
