Honeyd and OpenBSD 3.2 *resolved*

Hi again!

Found the solution. =)

I should have just believed the honeyd documentation and used arpd. By
creating an IP alias, I made OpenBSD itself listen to the alias address.
I did'nt understand this until I tried pinging the address -- I got
*two* replies, one from OpenBSD and one from honeyd:

21:12:58.092266 > icmp: echo request
21:12:58.092442 > icmp: echo reply
21:12:58.095738 > icmp: echo reply

So, when I tried to connect to port 80, honeyd started the
conversation as supposed to -- but OpenBSD immediately sent TCP reset as
from it's point of view no-one was listening to that port.
