You could do chattr +i /etc/resolv.conf, which will ensure not even root
can change it anymore (except after doing chattr -i of course).
Or you could look into /etc/dhcpc/config, which contains this:

# Add options here, examples are:
#  OPTIONS='-h "foo"'      set hostname (needed by some cablemodem
#  OPTIONS='-l 12345'      set leasetime

The second option seems to be the most elegant.

Untested solution BTW ;-)
