Well, in my case, either a subsequent CVS update fixed it, or very likely, 
it was due to my use of -O3 optimization with gcc 4.2.  I just recompiled 
dhclient a little while ago using -O2 instead, and it's working fine again 

I do tend to believe it was an optimization bug.

Sorry for any possible false alarms, folks.  :-)
