I'm using -current on amd64, and when starting dhclient, I get this:

syncope# dhclient
Internet Systems Consortium DHCP Client V3.0.3
Copyright 2004-2005 Internet Systems Consortium.

For info, please visit

Can't get interface flags for fo, please visit
 Device not configured

Sometimes where interface 'fo' is printed is random high ASCII
characters, other times it's blank.  This happens with and without
The only local modification to my tree is using -O2 (and
-fno-strict-aliasing) for HOST_CFLAGS, but this never caused this

Has anyone else seen this?
