An alternative could of course be that we stop copying the file to the
target system. We have been doing that since quite early; the commit that
added it was:

Do copy over dhclient.conf since dhclient doesn't support the /e/n/i hostname
option to the dhcp method

I have no idea what is meant by "the /e/n/i hostname option", but if the
default configuration file installed by dhcp3 is guaranteed to be functional,
maybe we should just use that for the installed system.
