The config file syntax is the same, apart from whatever was added on
isc-dhcpd v3. Apart from the version issue raised by Scott, using
OpenBSD's dhcpd would require patching dfly's BPF to allow it to work
with privilege-separated programs (in fact the patch I sent some time
ago for a privilege-separated tcpdump included such change).
