Ah ok didn't think of that.

But then I have to install kernel, mkinitrd, dev, and a bunch of other RPMs
that I really don't want in a vserver. Removing them is easy though so maybe
that's a fair enough workaround. I guess that's why Jacques' install scripts
install dev and other packages that shouldn't be installed in a vserver.
