[pkg-dhcp-devel] Bug#787622: isc-dhcp-client: No documented way to drop "options rotate" in /etc/resolv.conf using dhclient.conf

Package: isc-dhcp-client
Version: 4.3.1-6

I want to add at the top of my nameserver list in
/etc/resolv.conf, so I used this in dhclient.conf:

prepend domain-name-servers;

But this is not enough in my case, because the DHCP configuration from
my VPS provider makes /etc/resolv.conf to have this line at the end:

options rotate

The problem is that I don't want rotating nameservers, I want to use most of the time.

The manpage for dhclient.conf should explain how to disable such line
(if there is a way at all to do so). Currently, it does not say anything.
