cpio and pax are listed as installed. So is pmake. mksh abd makefs do not list

at wanna-build) but debhelper is not listed. Neither is it installed on
kullervo or crest. Since it is arch-all, I'll try to get makefs unstuck using
pretend-avail ... but maybe debhelper got uninstallable in the meantime? I'll
