When the named daemon is running it generates some annoying messages in the logs such as

kernel: process `named' is using obsolete setsockopt SO_BSDCOMPAT 

According to google, the solution is to comment out references to SO_BSDCOMPAT in the BIND source. So I knocked up the attached patch which seems to work.
