as I guessed from memory, here's one:

commit 75b4faa11bda438e34b5140934f6b812d1a69040
Author: Samuel Thibault <sthibault@debian.org>
Date:   Thu Mar 3 18:10:31 2011 +0100

    Make netcfg depend on isc-dhcp-client-udeb on hurd-any too
    for the same reason as kfreebsd: no support for udhcp in busybox.

If this is still true I don't know.

Kind regards
Philipp Kern
