The policy patch covers 3 issues. The part relevant for your dhcpd issue
is just:

diff -Naur --exclude-from=excludes policy.orig/net_contexts
--- policy.orig/net_contexts	2005-06-16 17:52:27.000000000 -0400

This is diff style and line beginning with "-" will be removed by applying the patch, those
starting with "+" are added.
I can't comment whether this patch will be accepted by the maintainer. But replying to
himself Ivan Gyurdiev corrected his suggestion and the "ifdef" shouldn't be erased completely,
but only enclose the dhcpc part. Means, move the line 

portcon udp 67  system_u:object_r:dhcpd_port_t

up to be above line

ifdef(`dhcpc.te', `

*if you want to put your hands on the policy file yourself*. Else wait for an official policy update
