I've tested the change against the current svn and some captures I have and it
worked - had a bit of trouble compiling at work in my VMWare Linux install,
since gcc would ICE, but it works at home. 

The warning goes away for discover messages alright; messages not using HMAC-MD5
and delayed authentication still have 11 as the minimum size, etc. One thing
worth considering is limiting the size of the AUTH option in DHCPDISCOVER
messages to 11.
