I'm confused as to why you would _want_ to have an IP on pflog0.
It's just a pseudo-interface for using tcpdump to view pflogd's activity.
I can't see any benefit to assigning an IP to it.
If you do have a legit need to do so, you're going to have to assign it
a static. Since it's not a real interface, it has no network connectivity,
and thus can't talk to any DHCP servers.
