Not sure where to report this. net-misc/udhcp got masked recently with following notice:

  - net-misc/udhcp-0.9.9_pre20041216-r4 (masked by: package.mask)
  /usr/portage/profiles/package.mask:
  # Diego Pettenò <flamee...@gentoo.org> (23 Dec 2008)
  # Mask these for removal, busybox provides those already, and are
  # unmaintained. As requested by solar.

This should NOT happen until Bug 205286 is resolved. The current Busybox in portage cannot be used as a replacement for udhcp, and dhcpcd is not reliable for many routers (reports broken MAC address), leaving us with no DHCP client on Gentoo.
