System: NetBSD 1.6.1_STABLE NetBSD 1.6.1_STABLE (COLWYN) #0: Thu Oct 2 15:15:00 CEST 2003 i386
Architecture: i386
Machine: i386
After upgrading to the latest ISC-DHCP version in the NetBSD 1.6 branch
the DHCP daemon won't start any more on my NetBSD 1.6.1_STABLE system:

Internet Software Consortium DHCP Server V3.0.1rc11
Copyright 1995-2003 Internet Software Consortium.
All rights reserved.
For info, please visit
old name service update routine line 11: illegal expression relating different types
    if (defined (ddns-fwd-name) and ddns-fwd-name !=
can't parse standard ddns updater!



The above line is *not* in my configuration but in the source file

Here are relevant parts from my "dhcpd.conf":

ddns-update-style ad-hoc;
ddns-updates on;
ddns-domainname "";
ddns-rev-domainname "";
include "/etc/dns.keys";

I've I remove the DDNS configuration statements the server starts fine.

Start "dhcpd".
