sorry for the last reply.  Was kinda "busy" over the weekend ;-)

Nah, IIRC we agreed on removing these two from the base.  Only the
OpenBSD dhclient with priv-sep should stay.  The remaining problem (as
you mentioned) was that simply removing our current dhclient breaks the
build.  Removing all of our current dhcp stuff fixes the build, but we
lose the possibility to use dhcpd on our live cd.

So, we should get the pkgsrc dhcpd on our live CD and then do the rest.
I prepared http://leaf.dragonflybsd.org/~matthias/nrelease.diff some
time ago.  This should fix the live CD problem, but I never tested an
installation, so it would be nice if someone could do this ...

ACK.  dhcpd 4.x.x from pkgsrc works like a charm.

Sure, go ahead.
