One possible issue would be that there are lots of different possible
DHCP clients (dhcpcd, dhclient, pump, and possibly others that I don't
know about).  The current BLFS development book has dhcpcd; I didn't
look to see if it also has dhclient / pump / others.

A workaround for that issue is to have an "alternatives to the XXX DHCP
client" sub-section, just like we do on the vim page.  I think that
should work out fairly well, assuming there is a BLFS section on various
clients that we can point to.  We could also simply mention alternatives
and let the user figure out how to install them, as long as the network
auto-configuration code is able to handle different client packages
fairly easily.
