named cannot start with samba include on 13 release on RPi

hey folks,
I just built a Raspberry Pi running 13 release to be a small (literally) domain controller for a remote site. It is identical (I think?) to all my other FreeBSD-based domain controllers:
* Samba 412
* bind916
* freeradius3

The only difference is that all my other DCs are VMs based on x86 64. This is my first raspberry pi freebsd install.

the only challenge is that I cannot get named to start:
/var/db/samba4/bind-dns/named.conf:14: expected string near '/'

the top of my named.conf is identical to all my other installs:
include "/var/db/samba4/bind-dns/named.conf";
options {
    tkey-gssapi-keytab "/var/db/samba4/private/dns.keytab";
    // All file and path names are relative to the chroot directory,
    // if any, and should be fully qualified.
    directory    "/usr/local/etc/namedb/working";
    pid-file    "/var/run/named/pid";
    dump-file    "/var/dump/named_dump.db";
    statistics-file    "/var/stats/named.stats";

and the contents of the samba named.conf is also identical to the others:

dlz "AD DNS Zone" {

    # For BIND 9.16.x
    database /usr/local/lib/samba4/modules/bind9/";


I compiled bind with the usual defaults +GSS base (required by samba):
