Is resolvconf installed by default?  If so then it's news to me.
(I knew that resolvconf was installed as part of the Broadband
and Dialup tasks; however Broadband includes dhcpcd and that does
work with resolvconf.)

If the installer is installing both dhcp-client and resolvconf then
one of the following needs to be done:

1. Install dhcp3-client instead
2. Don't install resolvconf
3. Add resolvconf support to dhcp-client

I can supply a patch to implement #3 if it is decided that that is
necessary.  I haven't worried about getting support into dhcp-client
before because I thought that it had been superseded by dhcp3-client.
