The following might sound funny, but I'd suggest to
give it a try:
rename the kernels version/extraversion to something
like 2.4.25 instead of 2.4.25-vs1.26 and try again,
maybe the bind9 package is just to stupid to parse
the kernel version correctly ...
(although I doubt this, and I didn't have a look at
the bind source code yet ...)
PS: this can be done in the toplevel Makefile ;)
