  Remove the -1 option from the installer.
  This option is specific to the old, now removed, ISC dhcp client.  The new
  OpenBSD dhcp client does not support this option.  If a user wants to set an
  IP address with the installer prior to this commit, it fails and the user sees
  an error message.
  The meaning of the -1 option was: "Try to get a lease only once.  If it fails,
  quit."  Due to this commit, this behaviour changes.  I think its better to have
  an installer which tries to get a lease more than once that having an installer
  which does not try to get a lease at all.
