Help! My system "lost" my bind94 package...
Let me preference this by saying I am first and foremost a linux user. So much of my experience with freebsd thusfar can be summerized by saying it's been "difficult" for me. So I installed the latest STABLE branch of FreeBSD (7.0) on this box with the intention of setting up a DNS server. After the install I decided to fetch the ports collection so I could install additional software. I assumed that this collection would be up to date, it turns out it wasn't.
I started by installing some of my personal "essential" utilities (vim, bash, screen, etc.). I finished off by navigating into /usr/ports/dns/bind9 and building the latest version of bind, which ended up being 9.4.x. I built this port using the basic
$ make && make install
command. It built fine, however i wanted the newest version of bind (as well as my other ports that I had installed). So I did the following
$ portsnap update && portsnap extract
I then built the portupgrade port and performed a portupgrade -a to update all of my installed ports. For some strange reason it decided to install bind-9.3 along side bind-9.4.... At this point my bind9.4 package I had originally install had disappeared from the output of pkg_info. However it was still the main version of named installed (as returned by the which) command.
First I used the pkg_deinstall command to remove bind-9.3 this seemed to work perfectly. However it looked like the bind-9.4 package was totally lost. So I tried to go into /usr/ports/dns/bind95 to build the newest version and just install that over whatever old files happened to be present from 9.4. (in between these steps I tried to use pkg_which and pkgdb -F in order to get the package showing up again, no dice, output from pkg_which on the binary yields only ?).
So I used the command $ portinstall bind95 and it started building bind95. I got an ncurses looking screen with some options. I tried selecting the option to "replace bind" thinking maybe this would replace my version of bind with 9.5. Not dice. Shortly after making the confirmation I got an exit code...
So I tried going into bind9's directory and doing a make deinstall no dice. Out of what I'm sure was pure frustration I navigated back into the bind95 directory and did a make clean && make && make install with that port. Below is the output at the end of the install (unfortunately being a n00b I didn't capture the output so I only have the end).

$ named -v
So now I have the newest version of bind up and running (I checked and it's answering queries and serving zones as it should). But it's still not showing up in pkg_info. How can I get this package to be targetable by the pkg system again? named is really the only application I need the package system to actually manage (as it's the reason for this machines existence). Any help is most appreciated. I will gladly provide any other information that might be needed. Thanks in advance for any help.
