Just so everyone knows I haven't abandoned you all...
Soccer season ends in a few weeks, I'll get a little of my free time back
then. Currently, I have games Saturday, Sunday, and practices 3 nights a
week on top of, well, everything else....

The package list isn't all that difficult, really.

Slightly more difficult. The older rpm is statically linked, and fairly
small. The newer versions of rpm, I haven't been able to build a
statically linked binary. There just isn't room on the image for the
binary and the libraries required by the newer versions of RPM. If anyone
has time to look into building a statically linked binary of a current
version of rpm, by all means, have at it. If someone gets it built, I'll
find a way to squeeze it into the disk image.
