I think we should just remove it from the dhclient-script and maybe
make the hurd-package conflict with the old dhcp-client package.

The new pfinet should accept just `-i $interface'.  However it will fail
if you present `--dhcp' to it.  Considering that there never has been
DHCP-support in the cvs repository I don't think we should make it
ignore that flag.  (maybe in the Debian package, but even there I don't
think it's a good idea, even for transition)
