build essential home (is this really right?)
Am I to understand that the package that lists the essential packages necessary for any
debian package to be installed is located at:
or equivalent mirror, as an entry in a tarred, gzipped file that needs
uncompressing, inside the list essential-packages-list, and only available
after one does the make on the the package to generate it, and after someone
downloads a script language named 'hugs' to do preprocessing?
Why doesn't it exist as an entry inside of Sources.gz, ie: as
Build-Depends: build-essentials, etc.
Build-Depends: base-files, base-passwd, bash, bsdutils, debianutils, diff, etc..
There has *got* to be a good reason for this. I just can't see it.
