Linux d-i only uses udhcpc at the moment. (Ubuntu uses isc-dhcp though
IIRC). We did discuss converging on a single DHCP client across all
Debian architectures, but:
* it's way too late to do this for jessie, I doubt KiBi would even
hear of it! d-i can be very sensitive to changes and this might break
in non-obvious use cases that don't get tested much
* for jessie+1, I think it's still early to decide this yet. I know
that systemd will have a DHCP client - d-i doesn't currently use
systemd, but who knows what could happen in 2 years; we also don't know
yet if there'll be a kfreebsd in jessie+1 officially
So I think we might come back to this a while after jessie is released.
