For one thing, extlinux isn't actually on the DVDs at all, so far: it
wasn't listed in @anaconda-tools or any other group, so nothing pulled
it into DVD composes. So I'd certainly expect this to fail for a DVD
install.

I added it to comps for F20 a few days back but didn't do it for F19; I
wasn't sure if we should poke it at this point. I guess I can do it now
and hope the DVD doesn't go over size...
