Hmm, can you figure out what options vpnc is passing to the vpnc script?
You can also do a quick change yourself and see what the helper prints

In vpn-daemons/vpnc/src/nm-vpnc-service-vpnc-helper.c, you'll see some
lines in main() starting like this:

#if 0
		FILE *file = fopen ("/tmp/vpnstuff", "w");
		fprintf (file, "VPNGATEWAY: '%s'\n", vpn_gateway);

Remove the #if 0 and #endif lines, and recompile/reinstall.  Then use
NetworkManager and try to connect to the VPN.  Then, check /tmp/vpnstuff
and see if it contains a line starting with "INTERNAL_IP4_DNS".  Does
it?  If so, what does that line contain?
