By the way according to the changelog of dhcp3-server in sid, on Tuesday
of this week, a patch to deal with problems on 64bit systems was
applied.  So if you get dhcp3-server 3.0.4-6, it might actually work
properly on a 64bit system now.

See http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=368302 for details
of the bug filed about 64bit problems.
