You can't, in the normal rcorder way, because dhcpcd doesn't get run by it's own rc.d script (unlike dhclient, whose rc.d script has BEFORE: wpa_supplicant to deal with exactly this case). I think that's wrong, but it's that way to support the ifconfig_foo="dhcp" configuration style you're using. A perfectly viable alternative would be to put "nowait" in dhcpcd.conf, so it doesn't matter what order things start in. For some other circumstances, what might then be handy is a later rc.d script, something like have_dhcp_lease, that could wait later for the lease to be granted in case there are other services that shouldn't start without one. -- Dan.
