Default dhcpd uses fake MAC address

My router has big problems assigning the correct IPs to Gentoo boxes.
If the NIC in the box has a MAC address of, say, 01:00:12:11:41:49:1e,
dhcpd reports something else to router: ff:42:54:59:20:00:1c:21:e0:42:c2


Why is this happening and how do I tell dhcpd not to mess with the MAC
address it reports to DHCP servers?

Same experience here. I always thought it was a linux/windows
compatibility problem since that is where I noticed the problem first.
