(after long searches, on some gentoo-page, I discovered one has to 'configure --without-gnome') and still had to install quite a few other packages: hal, dbus, libnl, libgcrypt before to run into the required redhat-specific dhcbd... I gave up here, seems to be no end of dependencies.

No, dhcdbd is _not_ redhat specific; anyone using or shipping
NetworkManager ships dhcdbd.  That includes SUSE, Gentoo, Fedora,
Ubuntu, Debian, PLD, etc.

You're probably correct.

Installing dchdbd is likely the last piece you'd need.  Note that you
still need some user session applet or program to store and feed NM the
config information.  There are currently two of those; the Gnome applet,
and the KDE applet.
