dhcpd nopf patch

Current net/dhcpd port has no options defined. There is request to be able to compile the port if PF is not part of the base system.

(In reply to Nikola Kolev from comment #0)

Why does this patch remove the USERS and GROUPS lines? Is that somehow required to build without pf support?
Comment 2 Dries Michiels 2018-07-04 09:03:40 UTC
As far as I recall, only isc-dhcpd uses the dhcpd user.
dhcpd from OpenBSD uses the base system _dhcp user as seen below:
_dhcp        16854   0.0  0.0    8916   5196  -  Is   14Jun18      0:05.53 /usr/local/sbin/dhcpd igb0

Unless there is a specific reason to keep the dhcpd user installed? 
It isn't used anywhere for net/dhcpd.
Comment 3 Nikola Kolev 2018-07-04 09:33:07 UTC
Adding USERS and GROUPS was mistake while creating the port. The daemon is using the default "_dhcp" user.

src/usr.sbin/dhcpd/dhcpd.c:	if ((pw = getpwnam("_dhcp")) == NULL)

Removing them from the Makefile is simply clean up.

Thanks to Dries for pointing this out.
