This is correct, and explained in the README. The FTP sites are at version
2.1r5-6, while the CD images are still at 2.1r4. So everything that has
changed since the CD images were made, is no longer present on the FTP sites,
but still "needed" for the pseudo-image. However, this is not fatal. You can
just go ahead with the rsync command, and rsync will fetch all missing things
directly from the CD image on the rsync server. Of course this isn't very
efficient, but still the best way to get the images.
