Hi Steven,

dhclient-script.kfreebsd does something slightly different, which is

    ifconfig $interface inet $new_ip_address
${new_subnet_mask:+netmask $new_subnet_mask} ...

Wouldn't that be more correct to also for the udeb script?

Also, while you're looking at kfreebsd issues in dhcp, would you mind
reviewing the proposed patch for dhclient-script.kfreebsd in #691090?

Best wishes,
