I can't speak for DHCP integration (as I've not tried it), but I use the
system-supplied version of BIND on Fedora 14, and it works very well
under wintest, but then I couldn't make it work outside that

We are very actively working with the BIND community to fix these
issues, and we hope to have a much better experience for BIND 9.8, when
that is released and available in distributions.
