Unless, of course, that always-on connection is DSL.  In which case,
they'll need pppd for PPPoE.

But even with that, I don't personally think that either pppd or dhcpcd
(or whatever DHCP client) is necessary in the base book.  I think the
best idea is a note like the one in Jeroen's post and the Wiki -- tell
the user that we only build support for a static IP, and if they need
something else, to look at BLFS.
