Does anyone have a script that does this, that they can share?

Write a script to updated the dhcpd.conf file when resolv.conf
changes.  dhclient allows you to create hooks that automagically
run a script of your choosing when a new lease is obtained.

Or you could search the list archives for when this exact question
was asked a few weeks ago.
