[csw-users] need help on old dhcp release

hello all,
on a server (solaris 10 sparc), we have an old release of ISC dhcp:
t2000-root% pkginfo -l CSWdhcp
    PKGINST:  CSWdhcp
       NAME:  dhcp - ISC DHCP reference implementation
   CATEGORY:  application
       ARCH:  sparc
    VERSION:  3.1.0,REV=2007.10.29

it works well, except that it logs everything on the console, even i 
have configured the files correctly (i think):
in dhcpd.conf:
log-facility local7;

in /etc/syslog.conf:
daemon.none;local7.debug            /var/log/dhcp.log

the server's console is completely polluted by messages from not 
authorized machines to get a valid IP adress:
Oct 28 08:36:14 t2000 dhcpd: DHCPDISCOVER from 00:03:ba:b0:06:ca via 
e1000g0: network cmi-recherche: no free leases
Oct 28 08:36:24 t2000 dhcpd: DHCPDISCOVER from 00:03:ba:26:a8:74 via 
e1000g0: network cmi-recherche: no free leases
Oct 28 08:36:33 t2000 dhcpd: DHCPDISCOVER from 00:03:ba:b0:0a:cb via 
e1000g0: network cmi-recherche: no free leases

i have 3 solutions:
- correct the declarations for these machines
- install a new release of dhcp
- forbid dhcp to write on the console

unfortunately, the two ones doesn't depend on me, so i'm wondering if i 
did something wrong that permit ISC dhcpd to write on the console?

thanks in advance for help,
