Gentoo arbitrarily re-arrangingyour installation is not your fault, and is not 
acceptable. Shame on Gentoo. I hate when distro maintainers wake up one 
morning and go "hmm, that old /etc/named.conf is soooo last-milliunnium. Time 
for a spring cleaning. I'll fling it into an arbitrary yet tasteful 
directory. If only I could color it mauve."

Or maybe they were just bringing it into line with BIND's own filesystem 
structure, or the FHS, or the BBQ, or the XYZ, or who knows what. But it's 
still a dirty trick.
