dhclient-script doesn't update resolv.conf with new servers

Description of problem:
When the dhcpd server defines new domain name servers, a RENEW on a
client doesn't update /etc/resolv.conf with them.
This is I think a simple typo in /sbin/dhclient-script: references to
$new_domain_servers and $old_domain_servers
$new_domain_name_servers and $old_domain_name_servers
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. change the DNS servers in the dhcpd.conf files
2. wait for a renew on a FC3 client
3. verify /etc/resolv.conf
Thanks, well spotted.
This bug has been in every Red Hat dhcp release since dhcp-3.0.1rc12 , but
was previously never triggered, as make_resolv_conf() was not being invoked
during RENEW, owing to bug 173619 .
Red Hat no longer maintains FC-3 - you are strongly recommended to upgrade to
FC-4 / FC-5 . I'll send a fix for this bug to the Fedora Legacy project
maintainers, and also build a version of the latest dhcp-3.0.3 with this
bug fixed for FC-3 - will update this bug when done.
This bug is now fixed with:
FC-3: dhcp-3.0.1-52.FC3 http://people.redhat.com/~jvdias/dhcp/FC-3/3.0.1-52.FC3
FC-4: dhcp-3.0.2-32.FC4 (FC-4 updates)
FC-5: dhcp-3.0.3-22 (FC-5t3)
The Fedora Legacy maintainers can find SRPMs at:
From User-Agent: XML-RPC
dhcp-3.0.2-32.FC4 has been pushed for FC4, which should resolve this issue. If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
This is not a security issue. Fixed packages provided by Jason. Closing.
