Now that I am in the office I could go look. We are both actually
correct. The default install for OpenBSD is still an ancient copy.
Furthermore, the ISC port as recently as 5.0 was dhcp 3.1.3. However
you are also correct. As of OpenBSD 5.1 the port was updated to a
4.2.3(.2 what every that is).

I will build a machine later today to test this out and get back to the group.

Thanks for the pointer!
