I'd be willing to bet that it has to do with threading. FreeBSD
doesn't support POSIX threads very well, or even any other kind of
BIND-9 compiled with SMP support and POSIX threads runs a lot
faster on Linux than on FreeBSD, and the reason is known to be
FreeBSD's current poor support for threading. Believe me, Paul Vixie
is very keen to get this issue resolved. ;)
