the problem is the dhcp client part.

in my case, dhclient running on a openbsd/alpha machine connected w/
a defpa did not see the DHCPOFFERs, which came over the fiber
alright, as i saw them w/ tcpdump -i fpa0.

thish was also the problem of the freebsd guy on the isc mailing.

trying to do a ``dhclient fpa0'' resulted actually in a stack smash
on my openbsd machine, discovering a bpf bug in openbsd.
not sure if that bug applies to netbsd too.

that was a sign of not many people at all using dhcp over fddi.
