I have a later version of dhcpd running on FreeBSD without problems. If
your DHCP scope is setup correctly and your DHCP clients are getting
settings that work, I'm not sure what is the problem you are
experiencing. You hostname variable can be set in the startup bash (or any
other shell's startup scripts) scripts on login.
