    Fix a VMWare related bug in the installer
    Someone noticed that the installer generated a wrong ifconfig_<if> line
    in /etc/rc.conf if used under VMWare and with the lnc(4) driver.  Strange
    about that is, that this only happens with that particular driver.  My em(4)
    interface under VMWare is detected properly and the rc.conf entry is
    The value of the interface variable is corrupted somewhere between the
    invocation of dhclient and the asprintf.  This commit saves the interface
    name in string directly after the dhclient invocation which fixes the
    problem described above.
    This commit is more a work-around than a real fix.  If someone comes up with
    a better fix, I'm happy to back this out and test the new one.  Until now, this
    makes the network configuration in the installer with VMWare and lnc(4) work.
