You need Marco's patch for SIOCGHWADDRINFO (or whatever it's called) to
get an IP from DHCP servers configured to hand out IPs only to PCs with
certain MAC addresses.

Besides that, it sort of works, but I experienced some freezes when
subsequently running dhclient again I could not track down yet.  I need
to get a dhcp-client package for Debian GNU/Hurd done for people to
test, but until we got SIOCGHWADDRINFO in glibc (nag, nag), there is not
so much use in it.
