please signoff for both architectures.

# changes wrt to dhcpcd3 series:
August 2008 sees the first release of dhcpcd-4. The new version moves
all configuration to /libexec/dhcpcd-run-hooks, apart from interface
address and routing. We also use the same variables as dhclient which
means existing custom scripts for dhclient can readily work with
dhcpcd with minimal tweaking. Also, the dhcpcd internals have been
re-worked around a table setup to extract options directly from the
DHCP message instead of populating a custom object and dealing with
that. Finally, NetworkManager-0.7.0 works with dhcpcd-4 when built
with --with-dhcp-client=dhcpcd. NetBSD -current (4.99.72) imports
dhcpcd-4.0.0-rc4 into their base system Smiling

the hooks file location are changed to /usr/libexec in the package.
