1. what for is this directory in FreeBSD 8.3
/var/named/etc/namedb/working
and
/usr/local/etc/namedb/working in FreeBSD 10

2. Can you provide the brief and complete mechanism of chroot-ing for FreeBSD 10?

3. I have /etc/namedb -> /usr/local/etc/namedb  is this somehow related with chrooting?

The second is manual build which is unsupported by all means. You cannot even uninstall it.

Don't tell me that I should reinstall that FreeBDSM.

It's because it doesn't have P letter? Does 'P' state for production?

Your problem by large. You have no way to address any security issues in such build.
