This patch adds support for the dhcp vendor optional bootfile (#67). It also
ignores the vendor tftp server name option (#66). Both of these are supplied
by the DEC Tru64 Unix dhcp server (called "join"), and in the case of the
bootfile, it is the only place the boot file name is supplied. There is a
perfectly good, 128 byte, field in the main bootp/dhcp packet where the
boot file name could have been stored, but it wasn't used - go figure.
