Actually it tries to use dhcpcd or dhcpcd-sv from the dhcpcd package.

I've uploaded a new netbase (3.16-9) to frozen/unstable that looks for
dhclient, pump, dhcpcd, and dhcpcd-sv (in that order), and tries the
first one it finds that'll work in the kernel version you're running. I've
tested it with pump, so theoretically this should fix this bug.

I don't speak for anyone save myself. GPG encrypted mail preferred.
