Harcoded Depends for a start.

AFAICT isc-dhcp is only used on non-linux archs, through that part of
  isc-dhcp-client-udeb [kfreebsd-any hurd-any]

You definitely want to get porters involved in checking the resulting
udebs, and I've therefore added them in Cc.

Have you checked possible impact on the installed size? At least
kfreebsd has been having regular size-related issues, so it might be
worth checking this point (even if the ramfs tweaks introduced in the
past few weeks should avoid further issues).

As far as timing is concerned: the debian-installer upload for D-I
Jessie Beta 2 looks good to me so I'll be likely lifting the udeb
freeze soon.
