Correct, you'll need two bits.  First, you'll see some stuff at the top
of the 'dhclient-script' file that uses dbus-send to send the DHCP
values to dhcdbd.  You'll need to copy that to your own DHCP script in
slackware that your dhclient calls.

Second, you'll need at least the patches from the Red Hat dhclient RPM
that contain the word "dbus".
