	The sendmail problem that were printed to stderr went away
	after I created a new 5.3 sendmail.cf; with dhcpd problems,
	mail can't get to my private servers so I have it re-routed
	to ns1.thought.org.

	I'll add the -d flag to my rc.conf; are you using the latest
	version of the dhcp-server from ISC or something other?
	I looked for a 'debug' flag on the man page and didn't see it.
	What should I loook for in th logfile?  or will it be 
	obvious :-)
