DHCP on boot = no default route

Hi folks,

I have a Netra running SunOS 5.8 with all the recommende Sun patches.  The OS 
is set up to DHCP and does so on boot except for one problem.  It doesn't get 
a default route.  However, if I issue the following two commands:

ifconfig hme0 down
ifconfig hme0 dhcp

Then netstat -rn shows the correct default route.  Should I just make an 
/etc/rc3.d/S99dhcpdefaultroute script or is there something I'm missing?

Any insight would be appreciated.
