dhcpd interface specification

Hey all, I'm missing something small here.  I set up isc's dhcp
server to listen on one interface and it listens on both.

gate# /usr/local/sbin/dhcpd rl1
Internet Software Consortium DHCP Server V3.0.1rc12

Listening on BPF/rl1/00:50:ba:58:c1:0d/
Sending on   BPF/rl1/00:50:ba:58:c1:0d/
Sending on   Socket/fallback/fallback-net
gate# netstat -an | grep 67
udp4       0      0  *.67                   *.*    

I've searched online and read the man pages about 5 times and
this is the only way I can find to specify the interface.  I've
also plugged into the subnet hanging off of rl0 (which was *not*
specified) and grabbed an IP address, thus confirming that this
daemon is indeed listening on all ints.

With a few exceptions, secrecy is deeply incompatible with
democracy and with science.
