That's very good, becuase I have had absolutely no luck making pump 
work.  All I get is "operation failed" and I've tried a couple of 
different versions of the supporting libs.  Keep in mind I'm still 
running on a pretty much base build of LFS. To make it work requires: 
newt; popt; python; slang; tcl/tk.  Admittedly, I should've had some of 
them installed already.
Looks like the 0.8.11 source was current as of march 1, 2001.  RH 7.2 
includes this version (7th revision), but also includes dhcp and dhcpcd. 
Rawhide also includes the same package.  So I would guestimate that it 
is the latest and greatest.  I wasn't able to make it run 
correctly....YET.  Probably not good for blfs, but I'm going to make it 
work anyways. lol  At anyrate, I figured I give everyone the update on 
what I managed to find about it.  Also, what are the current clients 
that we would like to include? Prior to this, I had only known about 
dhcpcd and the ISC client.
