Actually the new patch does quit a bit more than that.  *.pid file is moved
to /var/run, cache file is in /var/cache, and info file is in
/var/lib/dhcpc/  (this is where the former <ConfigDir> has been moved by
default and is still affected by the -L switch).  I'd like to see the patch
in the book, I think it's undergone enough testing.  I'm also gonna update
the hint to start pointing users to BLFS as opposed to hints.

Correct..this should be fixed too.
