If you just want dhclient just use /etc/rc.d/dhclient to start it.
pccard_ether does more than that. Specificaly it calls /etc/rc.d/netif
which may do static confirguration, start wpa_supplicant, and start
dhclient. Then it does some routing configuration for static interfaces
and finaly does IPv6 configuraition of the interface. pccard_ether is
intended to configure a cold interface on insert.
Any statement of the form "X is the one, true Y" is FALSE.
