/sbin/dhclient is just a wrapper on debian stable, if you're using version 2 
of dhclient.

# cat /sbin/dhclient
# $Id: dhclient.sh,v 2002/02/11 03:44:26 eparis Exp $

# dhclient.sh - a front end shell script that calls dhclient-2.2.x
#       or dhclient-2.0.x depending on the kernel that is currently
#       running.

#       Which version
case `uname -r` in
        # Give me a break...
        echo "DHCP requires a 2.x series kernel"
        exit 255

        # 2.0 uses the paramters as passed to us.  Just exec the real McCoy.
        exec /sbin/dhclient-2.0.x -q "$@"
        exec /sbin/dhclient-2.2.x -q "$@"
        # Huh?
        echo "Unrecognized kernel version"
        exit 255
