[Samba] How to switch from internal DNS to Bind

     I'm attempting to switch from the internal DNS to Bind. This is for 
my Samba test environment on a VM running Samba 4.3.1 on Ubuntu server 
12.04.1. Installed Samba using all the defaults.

make install

Pulled up the wiki link


Not sure if this is the correct start page. After the introduction I see 
the link "Setup Bind". I figure I need to start there? So I click the 
link and in the introduction I see another link for 
"Setup_a_basic_BIND_installation". Maybe this is where I should begin? I 
install BIND via. the repository.

apt-get install bind9

The wiki then says "*make sure that it was compiled with the 
'--with-gssapi' and '--with-dlopen' options*". I check by using

named -V | grep "gssapi"


Is this sufficient or do I need the absolute path to 

named -V | grep "dlopen"

Returns nothing.  Can I add these options after the fact or do I need to 
uninstall and compile on my own before proceeding any further? Thanks.
