You're asking for a world of hurt if you're trying to build F7 CDs using
the FC6 pungi.

Its part of the pungi configs in versions later than the one for FC6.
And no, you can't simply build the newer pungi for FC6 either, its got
some deps that would need to be brought back as well. Been there, done
that, actually, and wouldn't recommend it as something to suggest to
end-users wanting to generate CDs from the DVD. I'd just use F7 to build
CDs, get the posted somewhere, and get a torrent going.
