I'll side with this option.

I still like dhclient better than dhcpcd - the former for 90% of my 
applocations "just works", while whenever I tried the latter, 
considerable amounts of reading were necessary, and most of the time I 
found that its ideosyncracies were not worth the pain. But the time 
until netbsd-7 may as well be used for smoothing the rougher corners.

As to dhcpd(8), like you I don't see a reason why it has to be in base, 
as opposed to pkgsrc. (What's next? postfix? ;)
