I run BIND 9.3.4-P1.1 on Debian Etch
Here is my /etc/bind/named.conf.options
options {
directory "/var/cache/bind";

acl "local_ips" {;

allow-recursion {; };

zone-statistics yes;
statistics-file "/var/cache/bind/named.stats";

auth-nxdomain no; # conform to RFC1035
listen-on-v6 { none; };

When I do start BIND with these options, I get a error message:
Aug 6 08:45:56 hosting named[13113]: /etc/bind/named.conf.options:4:
unknown option 'acl'

Could you please help me, what this could mean? Does it mean that
default debian BIND package is compiled without "acl" support?
