Comment (by dnicholson at linuxfromscratch.org):

 I thought this was talking about the service script, but this is actually
 a bootscript called dhcp in init.d. Looking at the script, it's seriously
 broken. The preferred way is to use the network service script which
 doesn't offer a reload option.

 So, the options are to repair the init.d bootscript or to remove it. The
 init script is sort of broken by design since it offers no way to
 configure it per interface. Plus, the "reload" option (sending SIGHUP to
 dhcpcd) actually kills the daemon by design.

 I say just remove the bootscript. Anyone have a problem with that?
