I'd say this is an understatement, and you should definitely install
e2fsprogsg.  Preferably before rebooting the system.  I found this out
the hard way; compiled a new kernel, tried to reboot, couldn't because
fsck was missing.  No real problem; e2fslibsg was present, so I just had
to get /sbin/fsck on diskette from another system.  (Should have gotten
fsck.ext2 too, in retrospect, but its absence was less serious.)
