I had (only a quick) look at Net::DHCPClient. It seems it's release is
quite old and there is a more recent Net::DHCP, is this a suitable
alternative for you? Is there something Net::DHCPClient which
Net::DHCP can't (yet)?

Thanks for your quick reply. Forwarding this to the BTS. It looks like
Xavier Guimard already started[1] to package it.
