There is dibbler.   I don't have any experience with it, though, so I don't 
know if it's nicer or less nice.

If dhcpcd really is better than dhclient, I could probably hack in DHCPv6 
support pretty easily.   One thing that spooks me about dhcpcd though is that 
it supports dbus, which I've always found to be basically unuseable.   But I 
haven't tried it in years.   Do you consider this a valuable feature of dhcpcd 
for NetBSD, or just a bullet point?
