branch: http://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=refs/heads/master

Previous to this patch, if BR2_PACKAGE_DHCP_CLIENT was selected,
dhcpd.service was installed to the target on systemd systems.

On the resultant system, this would mean that systemctl would
show an error starting dhcpd.service, as the requisite files
do not exist. This does not cause issue on sysvinit systems
as the init scripts silently error when the files aren't found.

Fix this by adding a conditional check to the install define.
