dhclient fxp0 broken in -current for several days now

I *think* this started around last Friday or Saturday (May 19 or 20).
Suddenly, dhclient is no longer obtaining an IP address from my ISP
(Cox), nor is it falling back to the prior saved lease.

# dhclient fxp0
DHCPDISCOVER on fxp0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 8
DHCPDISCOVER on fxp0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 11
DHCPDISCOVER on fxp0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 11
DHCPDISCOVER on fxp0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 11
DHCPDISCOVER on fxp0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 20
No DHCPOFFERS received.
No working leases in persistent database - sleeping.

This last line above is particularly baffling, as I still have a
perfectly good /var/db/dhclient.leases.fxp0 file.

My /etc/dhclient.conf contains only one line:

prepend domain-name-servers 127.0.0.1;

I've resorted to manual configuration of fxp0 for now, based on the
information contained in the last DHCP lease, but I'd sure like to get
the DHCP negotiation working again.
