That is a powerbook/ibook only thing. Don't believe any stationary mac does that. But since when? No idea.

The link-local address allocation is the correct behaviour. All modern operating systems (Mac OS 8.5 and later, Windows 98 and later, some Linuxen) will automatically allocate IP addresses in the 196.254.0.0/16 subnet in the absence of a DHCP server. See RFC 3927.
