I've pushed the libguestfs patch, with also a change to ./configure so
that it chooses the correct distro macro:

http://git.annexia.org/?p=libguestfs.git;a=commitdiff;h=8dafeaa477f9e3d2fde827b8de4b44d66b661b69

Thanks for that patch.

The febootstrap patch is problematic.  You can't in general
reconstruct packages from what is installed on disk, because the
administrator may edit configuration files.

What we do for Fedora and Debian is to download the original packages
and pull out the original configuration files (only) which are then
packaged into 'base.img'.

So if I understand what you're trying to do, then I'm afraid it won't
work.  It's better to stick with downloading the packages and
unpacking them.

This part of the patch:

I discovered this bug yesterday and have applied it:
