Yes.  I dont' think dbootstrap utils.c can run a command and capture
the output.  I like Stephen's idea here.  Please add more logger stuff
(do we have logger on root.bin?) to show the commands being run as
well.  As you can see, it's very useful for debugging to see what
actual commands are being run...
