ARPCHECK not done in dhclient-script V3.0 and higher

All versions from 3.0 doesn't support an arp check before accepting the DHCP offer as described in RFC 2131.

This is cause the function calling the dhclient-script with xARPSEND and xARPCHECK was removed from the source code and later also from the dhclient-script.

Why does the current dhclient (-script) not use an arping as described in RFC 2131?

Kind Regards,
