Also, if you put "dhcp" in your /etc/ file it automatically
uses dhcpcd without affecting other interfaces where you may have hard
coded IP addresses etc.  For example, I just set up a travel router on
my NetBSD current box where the wifi interface connects to the
campground or such and the ethernet supplies the rest of the network
including serving DHCP to the internal network.
