You probably need to get the required user/s put into base-passwd.

No. $required == stuff without which the system basically won't work;
$base == stuff that's needed to be installed by default. If there's
stuff that's only appropriate for some architectures, then it should
get added to $required in an "if" (like happens for the different
architectures now).

A for loop would probably be simpler:

	required="$required libc0.3 ..."
	for x in bsdutils login ...; do
		required="$(without_package "$x" "$required")"

Should be done in whatever sysvinit package hurd uses.
