Are you running a DHCP client on that machine?  In my experience, the
DHCP client that comes with FreeBSD will write a new /etc/resolv.conf
file whenever it obtains a new lease.

Alphabetical (actually ASCII) sort order.  So 010.pgsql.sh will run
first, then apache2.sh, then landns.root.sh.  If you want, say,
landns.root.sh to run first, rename it 005.landns.root.sh, or something
to that effect.
