I'm on The code is probably lying there because we *were* using dhclient in the past. We stopped doing so when the ISC DHCP utilities moved from v2 to v3. A udeb is still built by isc-dhcp...but, from install/build/pkg-lists files, no build is using it anymore.

So, speak now or forever use udhcpc. > <grin> I think that pump was used in the very early days of D-I so support for it is a remaining of the pump->dhclient transition.
