Well, it is already in the archive:

  Description: Update dynamic IP address at DynDNS.org
   A perl based client to update your dynamic IP address at DynDNS.org,
   thus allowing you and others to use a fixed hostname (myhost.dyndns.org)
   to access your machine. This client supports both the dynamic and
   (near) static services, MX setting, and alternative host. It caches the
   address, and only attempts the update if the address actually changes.
   For more information on DynDNS.org, see http://www.dyndns.org/.

I'm still using it, although it is pretty out of date now and has open bugs
in the BTS.  Maybe Steve would let you adopt it?
