Just set up a new box (5.4-RELEASE) as a home gateway and had to
change the network card MAC address that does DHCP through the
cable modem.  I put the following in /etc/rc.early, but this seems
inelegant and possibly deprecated.  What is the proper way to do
this on a DHCP interface?

ifconfig rl1 ether 'aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff'
