What version of baselayout are you running? Are you on ~arch there also,
and have baselayout-1.12.0_pre17 (or better, I haven't synced today)?
>From the baselayout changelog:
*baselayout-1.12.0_pre17 (07 Apr 2006)

New release - load of changes! Quick summary.
resolv.conf management punted to resolvconf-gentoo
net modules helpers.d punted
- means you'll probably need ~ARCH of your dhcp client
udev coldplug support.
BTW, that means you should probably be running an updated udev as well,
particularly if you run coldplug, as it's integrated in udev now (and
consequently blocks the separate package coldplug).
Be sure you've etc-updated everything, too, as between the three updates,
there are enough changes to break your system in a variety of ways, if you
haven't updated the config to work with the new packages. There /are/
quite a few changes, and some of them change the files in /etc enough that
failing to do appropriately merge the changes /will/ break things!
As for dhcpcd itself, I too have it merged, but don't use it under normal
circumstances, as I run a static IP behind a rather old router. The
dhcpcd and a few other packages are there only as backup, in the hopefully
unlikely event I have to go back to dialup on short enough notice I don't
have time to grab the sources and merge them before I lose broadband, or
in case the router gives up the ghost and I can't get a new one right away
for some reason.
