Wow, there it is. I guess I could've found it by doing a careful
search of the initscripts package, which contains/owns
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0, which was the only script
in /etc/ that invokes /sbin/dhclient, which a comment in
/etc/resolv.conf revealed to be the program that wrote it.

Thanks guys,
