Default reinstalling parts of the base system?

Hi,

I accidentally removed my /etc/namedb directory. Shouldn't it be possible to rebuild it by simply running: cd /usr/src/etc/namedb && make install ?

Thanks

Edit Of course i tried that but got an error message, is there another way ?

Hmm, this should just work, I double-checked to be sure:

Code:
[/usr/src/etc/namedb]# make install
install -o root -g wheel  -m 644 named.conf named.root /etc/namedb
===> master (install)
install -o root -g wheel  -m 644 empty.db localhost-forward.db localhost-reverse.db /etc/namedb/master
What's the error message you got?

This is what i get:
Install -o root -g wheel -m 644 named.conf
install:wrong types of argument

*** error code 64

Stop in /usr/src/etc/namedb

Sounds like your sources don't match your installed base. What's the output of 'uname -r'?
