In 5.4 I had these a dhclient.conf that 
had these options:

option router-discovery 1
option perform-mask-discovery 1

It was the only way my notebook would 
get a dhcp address.  It seems I don't 
need these settings anylonger in 6.0 but 
maybe making them explicit will help 
your cause.

Hope this helps.
