have you tried

bash-2.05$ locate dhcpcd

you should get a bunch of stuff like this

/etc/dhcpc/dhcpcd-eth0.cache
/etc/dhcpc/dhcpcd-eth0.exe
/etc/dhcpc/dhcpcd-eth0.info
/sbin/dhcpcd <--------- binary we are looking for
/usr/doc/dhcpcd-1.3.20-pl0
....


Some systems dont have /sbin as a executable dir so you must use


bash-2.05$ /sbin/dhcpcd eth0

to launch the program
