|From what I understand port 68 must be left open to have a dynamic IP addres received through DHCP. And that it is quite normal.|
If DHCP get-address is all its for, that sounds safe enough.

|Port 68 is from the pump -i eth0 used to fetch an IP.|
If that is a concern to you then add
to your /opt/bootlocal.sh after obtaining your IP.
Port 68 will be closed.
I might go ahead and kill the pump anyway, though, since I use
an arcane dialup modem for internet, and set my lan address
with ifconfig eth0 192.168.x.x
