No other documentation than dpkg(8) and chroot(8) :). I myself have been
running bind in a chroot-ed environment (it really had a nasty security
hole). What I did was:

	1. cd to the chroot point
	2. tar xvfz
	3. dpkg --instdir=<chroot_point> -G -i bind_<...>
	And then set up some other utilities needed by bind
(e.g. sendmail, (ana)cron, ...).

Hope I help,
