I've resumed work on this. I'll release something in a few days.
I've had to grab the latest source (1.3.16) from an RPM source
package, since ml.org no longer exists.
I've backed out my sparc/arm changes because the patch didn't apply
cleanly to newer versions. If it's easy to fix (and test) I'll put
them back in; otherwise, I will make a release that only works on
intel followed by a release that works on other systems.
Unless I hear complaints RSN, the init scripts will block an will
remain in the same location in the startup sequence that the dhcpcd
scripts are in.
Look for a package in a few days.
