Make those echo to a file, just to be sure.

#! /bin/sh

echo $* >> /tmp/ip-up.log

The scripts run from a daemonized ifwatchd, not attached to the console
or anything.

You could set "ifwatchd=NO" in /etc/rc.conf and try it manually with the
-v option.

This is on the wishlist. Most IPSs I've dealt with deliver pretty constant
nameserver settings, so enabling query-dns on pppoe0 and using 

 pppoectl -n 1 -n 2 pppoe0 

and the tweaking /etc/resolv.conf manually always worked for me. Besides,
the output is easily scriptable, so a few lines of shell code should do
the trick, I guess. Patches to pppoectl or example shell scripts welcome,
please use send-pr ;-)
