I'm sure I've seen at least a couple of other similar DHCP queries in  
the last couple of weeks. I wonder how difficult it would be to add a  
simple DHCP client to FreeRADIUS?

OTOH, I think these queries have been in the context of 802.1x in  
which case this doesn't help (or else we need an EAP-DHCP :-)
