if it helps you, however I would need some information regarding the 
options to specify the prefix size that is used.
I found some prefix related options in the documentation but they all 
seem to be related to dibbler-server.

Regarding the resolv.conf issue: I don't have any dns-servers option in 
the config file.
My client.conf is pretty minimal:
downlink-prefix-ifaces br0,eth0

iface ppp0 {
Is there any default setting that I missed? If yes, how do I disable the
