then rebuild the appliance (make -C appliance clean all).
Possibly febootstrap should include PreDepends dependencies? For some
reason this issue doesn't affect us on Debian / Ubuntu later versions.
I'm guessing this has to be a bug in Ubuntu 10.04 apt-cache. If I leave out --recurse,
$ apt-cache depends -i bash libc6 | grep -v '^[<[:space:]]' | grep libc
Adding --recurse should not cause packages to not be listed. I imagine whatever bug caused this was fixed between the 10.04 and 10.10, since my home box running 10.10 doesn't have this problem.
