This is not the best advice. This will mean that he's installing bind
built from source, which will not get him the updates, QA, patches etc
of the bind that ship with the distro. It also means that the system
has no record of the source install, and that he will have to update
by hand and follow the site on his own for updates etc.

Sticking with the bind from centos is the best bet. The bind-chroot
does create a chroot'd bind environment, and works just fine. The
packages are QA'd and updates are available with minimal effort.

Building from source that which is already provided by the
distribution is a BAD IDEA.
