Why? I don't use the standard kernels, but it was my impression
that dhcp is entirely outside the kernel. To support that, I don't
remember any option on it while configuring the kernel, and I
know that it depends on a dhcp client being installed. (dhcpcd
is my preferened version in Debian.) Install that and you should
be fine.
