Actually, I must have broken something in my trial and error and it 
somehow decided to look in sysconfdir.  After running the commands from 
start to finish as I had posted them, the last command should put the 
script in /sbin.  Also probably want to add 
--localstatedir=/var/state/dhcp and mkdir -p /var/state/dhcp/db, and the 
script may need to be updated for the new path.  Not sure if the 
default...anyway.  I'm going to bed, will verify all tomorrow.
