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.
