cannot find named.conf and /var/named

I am using RedHat 9.0. I downloaded bind-9.2.3.tar.gz and placed it in /tmp. After unzipping I installed it using following commands.

./configure --prefix=/usr/local --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var


make check

make install

After that I went to /etc. But there is no named.conf file and also under /var there is no named directory. Then I installed bind which is shipped with RedHat (RPM package) with --allfiles option. But that also didn't work. What will I do ?


Thank you in advance
