ifconfig in rc.conf network problems

I used to have two ifconfig lines in my rc.conf:
ifconfig_dc0="media autoselect"

The first to enable DHCP and the second to set my networkcard to 100BaseTX 
full duplex.

Now after an upgrade to 4.10-release this doesn't work anymore. When I put 
both lines in rc.conf only the second line is effective and overrides the 
first, but I want to use both DHCP and 100BaseTX. I need to use the "media 
autoselect" because the networkcard defaults to 10BaseT but I want to use 
100Mbit. When I don't use DHCP the network is unreachable. Pinging then 
gives a "no route to host".

How do I solve this problem?
