No, only with BIND 9.9.3 only as far as noticed, 
I wouldn't be surprised if similar problems are lurking elsewhere.

Besides, in much the same sense that an operating system that locks
up is completely responsible for locking up no matter what bad,
stupid things the application does,
a packaging and installation system is completely responsible if
it does not build the indentical a.out/elf/whatever and other files
as the package from the vendor.

Not locking up no matter what the application does is a major
part of the description of "operating system."
Building a container with the raw, unimproved, warts-and-all bits of
the application is fundamental to the job of a packaging system.

My wild, uninformed guess is that the problems are related to how
your organization uses checkinstall etc. and that others probably
don't see them.  Do you set as many checkinstall knobs and
buttons as with BIND?
