dhclient vs dhcpcd selection is broken

Hi guys!

I'm currently maintaining NetworkManager package in AgiliaLinux, and
when updating to I discovered a bug.
This distro uses dhcpcd as default DHCP client, but there is also
dhclient v3 on some configurations.
I configured NM as --with-dhclient=no --with-dhcpcd=/sbin/dhcpcd, but
NetworkManager tried to use dhclient anyway, and fails, because it
requires v4 (it seems to be incompatible with v3).

I resolved the problem with the patch:

--- a/src/dhcp-manager/nm-dhcp-dhclient.c	2010-05-22 22:35:03.000000000 +0400
+++ b/src/dhcp-manager/nm-dhcp-dhclient.c	2010-06-25 00:22:47.618906714 +0400

Of course it is a dirty hack, but while I don't need dhclient support,
it works for me, but it will be better if you fix it in more elegant
and flexible way.
