The right way to do it would seem to be a symlink arrangement like:

	/etc/resolv.conf ->
		/run/etc-profile/resolv.conf
	/run/etc-profile ->
		/etc/profiles/home

and then have a script that updates /run/etc-profile and restarts
any necessary daemons when you change location. Doing that as an
/etc/network/if-pre-up.d script would be pretty straightforward.

Cheers,
