devd won't work as well, because the timing is a bit off (even if you
only get new addresses at boot time, which isn't guaranteed.  
dhclient-script already has a capability ("hooks") for running scripts
at the appropriate times.  If you check the mailing list archive, I
know I have previously posted the script I used to use for exactly the
same purpose.
