Seems sensible, although IIRC drakxtools has changed during this cycle to go
back to using dhcpcd by default again as it did for years before being changed
to dhclient.  We switched to the new upstream of dhcpcd which apparently is
much improved compared to the old one.  So if that's the default now, it would
make sense to install that one, but either way, it does make sense to make sure
a dhcp client is installed by default.
