Can you run ktrace ("cd /tmp ; ktrace dhclient ; kdump >x ; vi x")
and see what happens right before it prints that message (start at the 
bottom and scroll up)?

Just for kicks, postint output of
  * uname -a
  * sysctl machdep.booted_kernel
  * cd / ; config -x `sysctl -n machdep.booted_kernel` | grep bpfilt
  * ls -l /dev/bpf*
here may be worthwhile, just to make sure.
