Package: isc-dhcp-client
Version: 4.1.1-P1-9
Severity: normal
Tags: ipv6

It seems the dhclient-script installed by isc-dhcp-client is the version
leftover from the dhcp3-client package.  Most notably absent are the ipv6
handlers (BOUND6, RENEW6, etc.)  Looking at the source package, it does in fact
appear the debian/dhclient-script.linux.* files are from the previous dhcp3
package. (unless of course there's some reason I'm missing for keeping the v3
