I think you'll find you've got /etc/bind/rndc.conf lying
around from 9.1.0 revisions of bind. If you remove it,
bind9 and rndc'll use rndc.key, which means they'll
actually work.

If you don't have rndc.key, try
rndc-confgen -a

There was a brief note about that change in the package's
scripts. Or so I remember, anyway. :-)

Of course Pacman didn't influence us as kids. If it did,
we'd be running around in darkened rooms, popping pills and
listening to repetitive music.
