I'm not sure why someone would care about setting an IRC server via DHCPd,
but I won't second-guess the requirement.

option dhcp-parameter-request-list uint16;
This option, when sent by the client, specifies which options the
client wishes the server to return. Normally, in the ISC DHCP
client, this is done using the request statement. If this option is
not specified by the client, the DHCP server will normally return
every option that is valid in scope and that fits into the reply.
When this option is specified on the server, the server returns the
specified options. This can be used to force a client to take
options that it hasn't requested, and it can also be used to tailor
the response of the DHCP server for clients that may need a more lim-
ited set of options than those the server would normally return.
