    4 <para>There may be a good reason for abandoning the normal BLFS convention
    5 of using --prefix=/usr here.  If you are installing DHCP, it is likely that
    6 it is required during the boot process and /usr may be network mounted in
    7 which case, dhcpcd wouldn't be available due to being on the network! 
    8 Therefore, depending on your situation, you may want it to be installed
    9 in /sbin or /usr/sbin.</para>

     5:</userinput> Dhcpcd unpatched puts all configuration and temporary
     6files in <filename>/etc/dhcpc</filename>. This becomes very annoying
     7when dhcpcd tells you it's running and it's not.  You look in
     8<filename>/var/run</filename> for the pid file, but it's not there, the
     9pid file that needs deleting is in <filename>/etc/dhcpc</filename>. This
     10patch brings this program into FHS compliance, but more importantly,
     11puts files where you expect them to be.</para>
