Ah, but it's not that easy at all.

# cat /etc/sysconfig/dhcpd 
# Command line options here
DHCPDARGS=" eth1 "

the process table does indeed show the running process as 
/usr/sbin/dhcpd eth1.

This certainly suggests that it is only listening on the eth1 interface.
However:

# netstat -an |grep 67
udp        0      0 0.0.0.0:67              0.0.0.0:*

Thus you can see the daemon still binds to all interfaces.

# rpm -q dhcp
dhcp-3.0-6

The same behavior was shown with all other versions of ISC dhcpd tested,
including the standard 2.0pl5 that ships with RH 7.2.
