src/share/man/man5: ifconfig.if.5 rc.conf.5
Discourage the use of ifconfig_bge0=dhcp and prefer setting
in rc.conf(5) instead.
can you explain why?
i actually really like that dhcpcd (can) run on a per-interface
and that i can control all this easily from rc.conf.
You can control dhcpcd on a per interface basis in dhcpcd.conf as well.
When running as single daemon you get the following benefits:
* Interface addition/removal support
* Intelligent routing preference if >1 interface connected to the same
subnet or more than one default gateway present
* dhcpcd-dbus and thus dhcpcd-gtk support
None of these may be attractive to you personally, but this simple
change would cut out about 80% of the support requests I get and that's
quite attractive to me.
