Does FreeBSD have anything like the "up" and "post-up" options that 
Debian has in it's network config ? With these, you can have the 
network scripts automatically execute arbitrary commands on various 
events (pre-up, post-up, pre-down, post-down, etc) - so you could 
just add something like "post-up dhclient ..."

Alternatively, if if up/down is handled by a script, would it be 
easier to customise the script to call dhclient twice after bringing 
up an interface ?
