I wished to add some permanent arp entries before dhclient is run
every time this workstation is booted.
So i added two lines to rc.conf and added a file in /etc/rc.d
And in arp_flags i pointed out to "-f /etc/ARP_entries"

Normally when i deleted all arp entries with arp -d bla bla
and then load the arp entries from the above file things go fine.
The arp stuff is run indeed before dhclient (and yes /usr is also
mounted before ...) at bootup
But when it reads from the above file i get:

> arp: writing to routing socket: no such process
> arp: x.x.x.x no such process

So it reads the file indeed as requested, but it cant add the arp entries.
Any suggestions what could be done to remedy this?
