Port does not know the pid of daemondo and therefore can't send SIGHUP,
this should be done by launchd. I consider pkill/killall too dangerous
as a general way to do this.

The correct way to restart an already loaded bind9 would be:
  sudo launchctl stop org.macports.bind9
  sudo launchctl start org.macports.bind9
