What is the required configuration in a FreeBSD 8.2 release host for it to
publish its name in a dynamic dns supported network?

LINUX: For a Linux host  with name I had to do the following:
# echo "DHCP_HOSTNAME=x;" >> /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
# echo "PEERDNS=no" >> /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
# echo "SEARCH=\"" >> /etc/sysconfig/network
# echo "" >> /etc/sysconfig/network
# reboot

SEARCH: Couldnt find for host configuration
My Google search gave some links describing Linux host configuration but
none for freebsd host configuration. Some described FreeBSD server
configuration though (,
