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 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...
