DNS and multiple VPNs: Using dnsmasq to access multiple dns suffixes

On my Fedora 15 laptop, I'm almost always connected to several VPNs simultaneously. One VPN to my office or to my home (depending on where I am), one to the data center, one to a customer. These connections all have their own DNS server with their own suffix.

To make all dns suffixes working, I created a script that redirects all outgoing DNS traffic to dnsmasq running on localhost, which in turn forwards all requests for .lan to 192.168.15.254 and all requests for .gl to 192.168.1.254.

The script was put in /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/10-DNS:

if [ -e /var/run/dnsmasq.localhost ]; then
        cat /proc/`cat /var/run/dnsmasq.localhost`/cmdline |grep dnsmasq >/dev/null 2>/dev/null && \
        kill `cat /var/run/dnsmasq.localhost`
fi
 
if [ "$2" == "up" ]; then
        cp /etc/resolv.conf /etc/resolv.conf.dhcp
        echo nameserver 127.0.0.1 >  /etc/resolv.conf
        echo domain $DHCP4_DOMAIN_NAME >> /etc/resolv.conf 
        echo search $DHCP4_DOMAIN_NAME >> /etc/resolv.conf 
        /usr/sbin/dnsmasq -C /dev/null -r /etc/resolv.conf.dhcp --server=/gl/192.168.1.254 \
            --server=/lan/192.168.15.254 --bind-interfaces --listen-address 127.0.0.1 \ 
            --pid-file=/var/run/dnsmasq.localhost
fi

Once I had to fix resolv.conf manually when I connected my laptop to my Samsung Galaxy SII as well. This may mean I need to improve the script some day, but for the time being, it works good enough.
