Simplest workaround is to add any packages that are missing directly to:

 appliance/packagelist.in

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
libc6

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.
