Over 650 commits; 80 bugs closed, etc. What exactly is the problem, and
when you say "doesn't work" what do you mean?

Not true actually; it'll work with either. There was recently a bug
where if you had dhcp3 installed and had built NM with
--without-dhclient, that NM would still try to use dhclient. That's
since been fixed. You can always select your preferred DHCP client
using dhcp-client=[dhclient|dhcpcd] in the [main] section of the config
file too though.
