You're going to have to use "strace -f" - pump forks a child process
which does the actual work, and then exits when the child process
acquires the address (or times out).  The child, of course, remains
running so it can renew the lease.  Also, if it turns out that the child
is getting a seg fault or bus error, a backtrace would be nice. 

The dhcpcd code is a mess, I would avoid it. (I'll take a look upstream
and see if there are any changes to pump.)
