How to force a static /etc/resolv.conf?

I'm running 9.1.  I run a local recursive resolver, so my 
/etc/resolv.conf needs to remain static.  I have DHCPv4, DHCPv6 and VPN 
clients running which all want to modify /etc/resolv.conf.  I have set 
in /etc/resolvconf.conf:


But that only prepends that information.  Search domains and nameservers 
from other sources still get included.  I can set /etc/resolv.conf as 
immutable, but's a hack and it generates errors from resolveconf.

How do I tell resolvconf to always use a static configuration or, better 
yet, to not muck with /etc/resolv.conf at all?
