I think you first need to create a config file. If your prefix is the default (/opt/local), this may be as simple as doing `cp /opt/local/etc/unbound/unbound.conf-dist /opt/local/etc/unbound/unbound.conf`

You probably want to look at the conf file to make sure it's set up how you want it to be set up.

the default will run it as the unbound user (or rather, it will drop privileges after it gets the resources it needs)
