Description of problem:
dhclient requires dhcp and dhcp contains a dhcp server. I don't see the need to
install a dhcp server just so I can have a dhcp client. I suggest the requires
libraries or whatever be made into their own package so I don't have to install
a dhcp server to get a dhcp client. Currently I have reverted back to dhcpcd
because of this.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install dhclient

Actual Results:  It requires dhcp.

Expected Results:  It requires say libdhcp or another package.

Don't see any reason fro the dep to be there, so removed it.
