This is a followup to this question.

I eventually got my hands on a Slackware 12.1 machine with a dynamically-assigned IP address. It turns out it uses neither dhclient nor pump to get the address, it uses dhcpcd.

I can't for the life of me find where in the filesystem it stores the lease information. Anyone knows?

From dhcpcd manpage:

    file in which dhcpcd saves the host information. The word <interface> is actually replaced with the network interface name like eth0 to which dhcpcd is attached.

The default ConfigDir in Slackware 12 is /etc/dhcpc
