dhcpcd needs to be upgraded to the latest version (currently 1.3.6 I
think), specifically for 2.1.*. 2.0.* used version 0.something. The dhcp
howto has the URL for the latest version. Go grab it, install it, and
then dhcp will work again.

Yeah, there's a patch floating around that fixes this problem. For now,
use make xconfig instead.
