Current ReaR master code.

Using USE_DHCLIENT="yes" in etc/rear/local.conf
does not enforce to have any dhclient program
in the ReaR recovery system so that without a dhclient program
on the original system rear mkrescue "just works" but results a
partially useless ReaR recovery system where DHCP does not work.

I will fix and enhance prep/GNU/Linux/210_include_dhclient.sh accordingly.

The bug is when there is no dhclient program installed it results
this /tmp/rear.XXX/rootfs/etc/rear/rescue.conf lines


while when there is a dhclient program installed it results
/tmp/rear.XXX/rootfs/etc/rear/rescue.conf lines like


so an additional test in prep/GNU/Linux/210_include_dhclient.sh
to Error out when DHCLIENT_BIN and DHCLIENT6_BIN are empty
and USE_DHCLIENT is set should be all what is needed here.
