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? ;)
