I really don't understand the weird assumptions you seem to make here?
What makes you say you cannot run the same binary twice? Hundreds
(thousands) of installations already do so.

$ ./dhcpd -d -4 eth0
$ ./dhcpd -d -6 eth0

There, now you have two running processes.

If you by some weird system setup cannot execute the same binary
twice, how about:

$ cp dhcpd dhcpd4
$ mv dhcpd dhcpd6
$ dhcpd6 -d -6 eth0
$ dhcpd4 -d -4 eth0
