LFS 5.0 - dhcpcd failing

I have followed the instruction in BLFS 5.0->Chpt 14, DHCP clients, for
installing and using dhcpcd-1.3.22.  Yet, on boot, startup fails and I
get the following message in /var/dhcpcd.log:

Feb  6 22:17:08 lfs dhcpcd[83]: dhcpStart: ioctl SIOCGIFHWADDR: No such

In that the only modifications required to the scripts are for the
DHCP_START variable in  ifconfig.eth0,  I assume that more is needed
than I have:


It is not clear to me in the man page for dhcpcd what else is required. 
Can someone please point me in the right direction?
