i don't think so, running the build in debug mode shows that mklibs.sh
is still grabbing pic libraries from /usr/lib which is normal since we
don't extract things like libc6-pic.  in one of my tests without them
i ended up with a root disk lacking libc, but it may be worth testing again..

done and done.

it never came up oddly enough... i was certain i was going to have to
add --force-yes to apt-get's command line args (which doesn't work
btw).  but it never gave me trouble when run inside of boot-floppies.
im not entirely sure why...

e2fsprogs is essential: yes anyway so dependencies asside you would
think apt would always throw a conniption.
