Hmm...if I'm reading my copy of ifup-eth correctly, it seems to override
dhclient.conf only if dhclient-${DEVICE}.conf already exists.  There's
even a comment in there about being able to use the dhclient.conf file
"(as documented in the man page!)" if the device-specific file is
nonexistent or empty.

I mostly use static IPs, so I don't use dhclient much.  :)
