I had another few minutes to look at this today.
To clarify the question, I would like to run an external
program on the dhcp server when it allocates an address.
I think I found the answer. ISC DHCP since 3.1.0a1 has:
"A new common configuration executable statement, execute(), has been added.
This permits dhcpd or dhclient to execute a named external program with command
line arguments specified from other configuration language.
Thanks to a patch written by Mattias Ronnblom, gotten to us via Robin Breathe."
