Re: 3.7 install script - dhcp

Thanks for the clarification, but I'm thinking your man pages must be -current, because I can find no mention of resolv.conf.tail in any man pages on my 3.7 (cdrom) system. The -current man pages on openbsd.org website appear to confirm the behaviour already present in cdrom release.

man resolv.conf(5)

The resolv.conf.tail file is used to pass extra options to the
resolver. dhclient effectively appends the options in resolv.conf.tail
to the resolv.conf file.
