The following patch adds a DHCP daemon service.  It applies cleanly to
commit 341bddb31542d03bef35b1234e6e9466be337798.

I haven't found the time to add system tests yet, and I'm not sure how
easy it would be to do that (wouldn't such a system test require at
least two marionetted VMs?  Or is it possible to do it with just
one?).  Any thoughts about how to do that would be welcome.

In addition, I decided not to provide any kind of Guile scheme
representation for the daemon's config file, since that was the
quickest way for me to get a working DHCP daemon service.  I think it
makes sense to let a user specify a config file explicitly, like this
patch does.  I also think it would be neat to provide a way to
configure the daemon in Guile scheme, like we do for other services
such as openssh.  Any thoughts on this front would be welcome, too.

Thank you!  I hope this service proves useful to somebody besides just

Good catch; I've fixed the ChangeLog entry.  I've also added
documentation for <dhcpd-configuration> in the manual, since users
deserve good documentation.  I've committed all this as

Thank you both for your helpful review!
