Configured /etc/dhcpcd.conf:

# A sample configuration for dhcpcd.
# See dhcpcd.conf(5) for details.

# Inform the DHCP server of our hostname for DDNS.
hostname arve
# To share the DHCP lease across OSX and Windows a ClientID is needed.
# Enabling this may get a different lease than the kernel DHCP client.
# Some upstream DHCP servers may also require a ClientID, such as FRITZ!Box.

# A list of options to request from the DHCP server.
#option domain_name_servers, domain_name, domain_search, host_name
option domain_name_servers, domain_name, domain_search
option classless_static_routes
# Most distributions have NTP support.
option ntp_servers
# Respect the network MTU.
option interface_mtu
# A ServerID is required by RFC2131.
require dhcp_server_identifier

# A hook script is provided to lookup the hostname if not set by the DHCP
# server, but it should not be run by default.
nohook lookup-hostname

Hostname is not send to dhcp-server, nether with "hostname arve" or with only 
"hostname" set.
Install NetBSD from cd as found on the mirrors. Give your installed machine a 
name dhcpd accepts and handles to dns. dns will only have the lease, but never 
the hostname, because in none one the dhcp-requests the hostname the client 
would like to have associated is sent to the server.
Kick out dhcpcd??
