There is code in PowerDNS that, in theory, allows you to set the SOA serial
to 0, and have it get calculated based on the maximum change_date on the
fly. This code has been disabled because it is slightly broken.

The RPMs are as "known" as the source. There is a spec file in the tar.gz
but as the PowerDNS RPM has heaps of dependencies, you'll have a lot of work
building it yourself. But feel free to try it, download the tar.gz and run
build-instructions/rpm-build or so.
If that file isn't in the tar.gz, look at the wiki.powerdns.com entry on
