The reason that it puts the pidfile in /var/run/dhcpd is that you are
running with either paranoia or chmodded as the dhcpd user. In either
case it can't write to /var/run as it starts up as the dhcpd user.
If you look at the ownership of /var/run/dhcpd you'll see it is owned
If you run as root, or without paranoia it will in fact create the
pidfile in /var/run/
I suppose we could patch the man pages depending on the compilation
options or something.
