I'm running ~amd64:
Portage 2.1_pre7-r5
System uname: 2.6.17-rc1-mm2 x86_64 AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3200+
Gentoo Base System version 1.12.0_pre17
Udev: sys-fs/udev-089-r2

I'm not using coldplug

I always etc-update my system after emerging and especially _before_ 
rebooting. (you forget it once, then you know which bad things can happen...)

after the sync of this morning I have installed portage-2.1_pre7-r5, 
man-pages-2.29, git-1.2.6 and somewhat later openoffice-bin-2.0.2.
and the funny thing is, I tried dhcpcd-2.0.4 just now and it works... I get an 
ip-address also after a reboot. I did not change any files in /etc apart 
from /etc/portage/package.mask to remove =net-misc/dhcpcd-2.0.4.

so problem solved, but I'm still curious as to what changed so that it works
