dear Stephen, you are starting bind with the chroot option (-t /usr/
Even if I have never used that option, I am pretty sure that means
that any absolute path you give in the configuration file will be
relative to that chroot (/usr/local/bind).
So, what in the configuration file is defined as / will be /usr/local/
bind in your filesystem, and what is /etc will be /usr/local/bind/etc.
