*If* you use DHCP, which seems to be the default these days, then that
file can be used to alter the default DHCP configuration options for
your client.  If it's empty, the client will use its default options,
which are probably quite fine, most of the time.  If you're not using
DHCP, then that file doesn't matter.

I suppose there's some advantages for an install routine to put in a
null file, than not put in any file.  It'll stop some people asking why
they don't have a dhclient configuration file, or help those find the
file to edit who don't bother checking the documentation.

(This computer runs FC7, my others run FC4, FC5 & FC6, in case that's
 important to the thread.)
