DHCP 4.1.1b3 is running great here on a FreeBSD 7.2 based failover
pair, around 100k active leases. Stable, no obvious memory leaks, no

It would be good to get the following minor patch into the 4.1.1
release version:

It is purely a textual correction of two error messages, no functional

On my wish list is also being able to run with USE_SOCKETS through
./configure - but that is probably a bit more work. My reasons for
using this is that *all* my clients are connected via DHCP relay
agents (thus no broadcast handling needed), and that I need to run
several dhcpd processes on the same physical server.

(Actually, to *really* do this properly one would also need to bind
the OMAPI address to something other than INADDR_ANY, which is not
directly handled by USE_SOCKETS.)
