Hello. I'd echo Thor's comments. Having a dhcp server in the base
distribution is highly desirable for me. Enough has been leaving base as
it is, losing yet another service that I use regularly on NetBSD servers
would be unfortunate. I already get questioned as to why I prefer NetBSD
on a periodic basis. I'd rather not have to jump through yet more hoops to
keep services running.
