i know how to run dns without dhcp, but i have a need for the
opposite.  just in case i've missed something in the man page --
is there a way to run dnsmasq as just a dhcp server?  i'd like to
stick with dnsmasq because i'd rather not have to (re)learn how
to configure the ISC server, or build busybox, or whatever.

(i may be able to work around this by forcing the competing DNS
server on the box to only bind to other interfaces, giving
dnsmasq port 53 access on the interface where i'll be serving
dhcp, but i'd prefer the more general solution.)
