A nfs mounted /usr would not work. Should I change it to /usr ? I than could 
add a note about using / instead of /usr as prefix when having a 
nfs-mounted /usr?

Oops, yes, I'll add them to the document.  It is as the author of the package 
has written in the README. But hmm, wait a minute - I did a mistake here: The 
author wrote:
"... You can change the default dir with these knobs.
For example, to satisfy FHS compliance you would do this:-
DBDIR=/var/lib/dhcpcd ..."
So the DBDIR is not correct and that sed is mispositioned.

I think I have commited the change to fast - some details are not correct. 
I'll fix them and come up with the fixed version here again.
