A much cleaner and faster way: run the scripts from /etc/resolvconf/update.d 
at that stage. This may create files with no DNS entries but at least the 
files are there. And in the case of bind, it will be told to reload its 
configuration when new DNS entries appear.
And actually, it is done when /etc/init.d/resolvconf is run at boot time. If 
the file creation fails and the script /etc/resolvconf/update.d/bind does not 
create the needed file, I would consider this a bug somewhere along that
