 dhcpcd has moved to the  dhcp-client  package.

I tried installing dhcp-client (2.0pl5-4 from woody), and could not get it to work at all. Ifconfig said that eth0 is up, but it had no IP address assigned, and route should no routes. I tried experimenting with the config file, but it appeared to have no affect.
