I think NetBSD still has a pretty ancient (by comparative terms)
and bug ridden version of dhcp in the distribution.   Of course,
at the rate that dhcp versions have been appearing in the not too
distant past, that is probably understandable.

But it isn't worth looking for bugs in the dhcp code in NetBSD at
the minute - it just all needs to be upgraded - ideally to version 3
if that actually gets released soon (and then that should certainly
be pulled up for 1.5.1).

Even 3.0rc7 seems like it is almost stable enough to include if
nothing newer is available by some magic date.
