Because:

1. The first m0n0wall versions did have DHCP, but no DNS forwarder
(that feature was added later)

2. At the time the DNS forwarder was implemented (so when we first
used Dnsmasq in m0n0wall), the latest version of Dnsmasq didn't even
have DHCP server support.

Please inform yourself before complaining.
