Assuming that's in the "dhclient" variable, how about saying "... to start
by using ``dhcp''"? Though that documents the thing in three places now...

dhclient and the dhcp option do different things. The former starts the
ISC dhclient, the latter dhcpcd. If this is more confusing than helpful,
I don't mind leaving it out.

Why is the variable to start dhcpcd named "dhcp" and not "dhcpcd"?
I'd expect this for consistency...
