A little birdy told me that Johnny Hughes said:

] Benjiman,
] %verify(not size,not md5) %config(noreplace) %attr(0640,root,named) /etc/rndc.conf
] %verify(not size,not md5) %config(noreplace) %attr(0640,root,named) /etc/rndc.key
] (those lines in the bind SPEC file should have only replaced files that
] are not changed for rndc.conf and rndc.key)
] Do you maybe have the caching-nameserver RPM installed on an active DNS
] box that is used for zone control?

and my rndc.key file was preserved...
  it's altogether possible that the default rndc.conf worked fine
  before and used an "include rndc.key;" statement...
  but the new one definately did something else...
  (had a new key spec declared inconsistent with any existing rndc.key)
