Would you like to do something like this?
ifconfig en0 link 00:03:93:ce:11:32

I think I can throw together a patch for ifconfig to enable that...
but I seem to recall there already is a way to change the MAC
address. Or maybe that was in some other BSD. I couldn't find
anything about it in ifconfig.c either.
