My experience is that configfile (http, works
as you'd expect it to, and that set
endpoint=$net_efinet0_dhcp_boot_file; configfile $endpoint does the
same. Am I hitting some corner case where things are being incorrectly
parsed and so giving me unintended functionality?

How are custom DHCP options handled? I can't find anything in the
documentation about them being interpreted, and a quick look at the
code only shows it setting known variables.
