Yes.  Two privsep'ed implementations were mentioned on owl-dev.  We need
to package one of them.  Probably ndhc:

Since you say "by default", I assume that you're aware that you
currently can enable DHCP client support at your own risk by editing one
line in dhcp.spec.

# We do not officially support the DHCP client because it is rather
# complicated, yet it runs entirely as root, which we find an
# unacceptable and unjustified security risk.  If you enable this
# setting, then you're essentially running your own revision of this
# package, and you're on your own with possible vulnerabilities.
