OpenBSD: How to avoid resolv.conf to be touched by dhclient

I prefer to provide DNS address of my choice instead those from my network provider. Usually OpenDNS servers are a good option.

So, to avoid dhclient touch ‘/etc/resolv.conf’ I configure the /etc/dhclient.conf as follows:

initial-interval 1;
send host-name “myhostname”;
#request subnet-mask, broadcast-address, routers, domain-name,
#       domain-name-servers, host-name;
#send dhcp-lease-time 3600;
supersede domain-name-servers, ;
supersede domain-name “”;
request subnet-mask, broadcast-address, routers;

And /etc/resolv.conf.tail :

lookup file bind
