pdnsd works well for this, especially with the recent change to allow
automatic updating by ppp (which could be used by a DHCP client too).
I use it here, so my resolv.conf points to 127.0.0.1 and every time my ppp
connection comes up pdnsd gets told the new IP addresses to use as DNS
servers. This helps a lot with squid...
