I don't know why but I couldn't think about that option at all.
That makes totally sense.

Since it had something to do with the boot process I skimmed
a bit over /etc/rc.d/* and stumbled upon /etc/rc.d/netwait and
read it. Although it says that one should prefer SYNCDHCP
(actually it says synchronous_dhclient="YES") at the very
beginning, I gave it a shot.

That's a good point too.
