  Commit the various network interface configutation updates I've been
  working on.
    1) Make it possible to configure interfaces with certain characters in
       their names that aren't valid in shell variables.  Currently supported
       characters are ".-/+".  They are converted into '_' characters.
    2) Replace nearly all eval statements in network.subr with a new
       function get_if_var which substitues an interface name (after the
       translations above) for "IF" in a variable name.
    3) Fix list_net_interfaces() in the nodhcp case.
    4) Allow the administrator to specify if dhclient should be started
       when /etc/rc.d/netif configures the interface or only by devd.
       This can be set on both a per interface and system wide basis.
