Running DHCP server in Solaris 10 container

I've been able to get ISC's DHCP server running in a Solaris 10
container (zone) by following this thread: 

Simply commenting ALIAS_NAMES_PERMUTED out of sunos5-5.h did not work
for me. I had to comment out the following code from discover.c: 

                if ((s = strrchr (ifp -> ifr_name, ':'))) {
                        *s = 0;

Is there a reason the DHCP server strips the :1 off interface names or
can this modification be incorporated into future releases?
