Bug#260608: webmin-dhcpd dependency problem

webmin-dhcpd should either be removed, or have it's dependencies fixed.

This package is not installable in it's current state due to a
dependency on dhcp-server, which is no longer available in Sarge, or
Sid.  The dependency needs to be changed to dhcp3-server.

The package also needs to have the following defaults set for the Webmin
module config:

DHCP server config file: /etc/dhcp3/dhcpd.conf
DHCP server executable: /usr/sbin/dhcpd3
Command to start DHCP server: /etc/init.d/dhcp3-server start
Command to apply configuration: /etc/init.d/dhcp3-server restart
DHCP server lease file: /var/lib/dhcp3/dhcpd.leases
Interfaces file type: Debian

As an interim measure for other users who stumble across this bug I have
attached a dummy .deb made with equivs for the unavailable dhcp-server
package.  This will allow webmin-dhcpd to be installed, but the user
will still have to apt-get install dhcp3-server, plus apply the module
configs that I have noted above.  Nonetheless this workaround makes the
webmin-dhcpd package usable at least.
