patch

Update is straightforward.

Main new feature:
-x (exclusive) flag that can be set to interface, in which case that DNS
setting will override all previous DNS settings, and this will persist over the
subsequent DNS updates, if any.
This feature is necessary to prevent DNS leaks when an exclusive VPN is enabled
on the system. I personally requested this feature, and Roy Marples implemented
and released it in less than a week.
Additionally, several other, minor bugs are fixed by this release.

Changes I made against 3.7.0:
* $* -> $@ (upstream is notified)
* Man page BUG section modified (same as FreeBSD did before, upstream is
notified)
* Minor delta (printf vs. echo) left from the previous FreeBSD branch

I tested it on 10.1 - works fine.

Please MFC to 10.1
