Description of problem:
There's an extra space before a period (end of sentence) on a few lines.
# man dhclient
dhclient to work on IBM zSeries z/OS Linux guests .
The -B option instructs dhclient to set the bootp broadcast flag in
request packets, so that servers will always broadcast replies . This
is equivalent to specifying the ’bootp-broadcast-always’ option in
dhclient.conf, and has the same effect as specifying ’always-broad-
cast’ in the server’s dhcpd.conf. This option is provided as a Red
Hat extension to enable dhclient to work on IBM zSeries z/OS Linux
