Re: dhcpcd.conf, ntp_servers, and RCS ID?

The recent import of newer versions of the dhcpcd software has changed
some behaviors.

In the past, the default "dhcpcd.conf" included "option ntp_servers".
The current default has this commented out.

Some people commented that dhcpcd.conf shouldn't do so much by default.
It could even change timezone if the DHCP server sends the correct RFC option.

I was therefore surprised when my machines running -current reported
"No association IDs returned" when running 'ntpq -p'.  (My "/etc/ntp.conf"
has commented out the default servers in favor of getting them via DHCP
or explicitly using my local NTP servers.)

No problem, uncomment the option.

It then turns out that "dhcpcd.conf" no-longer bears an RCS ID.  As
such, changes made will be flagged when 'etcupdate' is run, even with
the "-l" option.

Thoughts on how to manage that without an RCSID are welcome.
Hopefully we'll move of CVS one day and this problem will come to a head again.

Perhaps these items could be restored?  At least restore the RCS ID so
I won't get bugged about enabling "option ntp_servers".

I'll look into this when I get back to a sensible keyboard.
