Charlie Brady:

OK, so this statement is incomplete:

It also does not tell you that you need other POSIX-standard commands such as |mv| and |ln|. But you need them, too. I draw the line at listing every command, that POSIX-conformant systems have had to have for two decades and that are also listed in the Linux Standard Base <>, that is required. That would be ridiculous. I also don't mention things that /operating system doco/ says are fundamental for building packages, like build-essential <> and base-devel <>. Pointing out that you need |redo|, on the other hand, is pointing out something that is not POSIX, not in the LSB, and not in the operating system doco. On those grounds, I should add that you need |xmlto|.
