There are two kernel options that dhcp needs but which often seem to
be left off on Debian PPC kernels.  I think they are CONFIG_PACKET and
CONFIG_FILTER, but I'm not sure.  I found this out by running
/sbin/dhclient-2.2.X -- try it, and if this is your problem, it will
give you a helpful message telling you so.

I solved this by compiling my own kernel.
