Why dhclient over dhcpcd?  I don't really care much, but my argument is 
over installing the server...ISC installs both (can we install just 
dhclient?  It's not done in BLFS currently), while dhcpcd only installs 
the client.  It'll be decided by the user anyway, but I think installing 
ISC is probably not the best direction for the base LFS unless it's easy 
to separate out the client from the server.
