What is the last entry in /var/db/dhclient.leases ?
If there's something, does that make sense ?

Anything dhclient related in /var/log/messages ?

And how about running dhclient manually in the foreground ?
As root, kill the running dhclient pid first, and then start:

    # dhclient -d rl0

where you should replace "rl0" by your own network card.
Does that tell you something useful?
