I also have the problem. Everything was all right while using dhcp3-server package, but 
since the upgrade to isc-dhcp-server I have this :

dhcpd: No subnet declaration for eth0 (
dhcpd: Not configured to listen on any interfaces!

I did add eth0:0 to /etc/default/isc-dhcp-server :
INTERFACES="eth0 eth0:0"

and this gave me :

dhcpd: No subnet declaration for eth0:0 (no IPv4 addresses).

while ifconfig gives :
eth0:0    Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 48:5b:39:45:c5:fb   inet
           adr:  Bcast:  Masque:

and in the dhcpd.conf :
subnet netmask {

and I'm actually using this network, so it is set up and running, and everything was fine 
with the previous version of the package (dhcp3-server)

Installed version :
ii  isc-dhcp-server   4.1.1-P1-9   ISC DHCP server for automatic IP address assignment
