DHCP protocol per se doesn't have a notion of "require server to sent such and
such options". Maximum client can do is to ask nicely for an option to be sent.
Server may ignore such request.

If you want to exit if server did not sent an option you absolutely require,
you can do so by analyzing environment variables in the dhcpc script.

Please take a look at files in examples/udhcp/
