dummy dhclient

I suspect that what you are looking for is something that is just looking
for DHCP traffic, but doesn¹t actually grab a lease.

I don¹t think that there is a current port for this but this program
 but dhcp-agent alleges to have  a sniffer option.
I haven¹t used it but I recall stumbling upon this a while back when I was
looking for the same.

If you try it out, let me know if it works.
