Ha! So it is :)

So should the plan be to make setup's scripts run via dash-static and
not use rpm-helper scripts and deal gracefully with non-existing

Then filesystem can require setup and all will be well in the world
(other than the general draklive problem where groups are somehow not
honoured by rpm when installing in the chroot)
