OK. I'm finally getting there. dhcpcd -k eth0 is definitly cleaner than
killproc. There is a state component to dhclient, but I do not understand
it, which seems to be important now.
We may be at the point that some of this (mainly, multiple dhcp nics) is
beyond BLFS. As is being discussed elsewhere, while Hints are not about
simle installation instructions, BLFS is. Hints could then concentrate on
more complex arrangements. In this case, your hint could modify the
killproc line with dhcpcd -k, replicate and your properly handling multiple
nics. Just more to think about.
