I noted in the readme that we replace bzip2, coreutils, e2fsprogs, file, 
findutils, gawk, grep, inetutils, less, modutils, net-tools, procps, sed, 
shadow, sysklogd, sysvinit, tar, util-linux, and vim.  (I note that this list 
should have gzip and patch added to it.)

We don't have directories for all of those packages.

Never bet against the cheap plastic solution.
