While probably OT, I can answer that from a personal standpoint. 
dhclient wouldn't work with my dsl router....I think it was a broken 
router,  but I never knew for certain, at the time could have well been 
user error.  At anyrate, dhclient works fine with it now, but that's a 
year and some later, a version upgrade of dhcp and probably 3 or 4 
firmware revisons on the router.  At this point, I don't need any of the 
added benefit of dhclient and am quite comfortable with dhcpcd.  Having 
said that, I'm working on my webserver and now using  As 
Murphy's Law assures me, I will need dhclient about an hour from now. :-)
