Thanks for the report.  It's a deficiency in the install program.  The
``Essential binaries'' collection is in fact included in what gets
installed, but because it's done so as a dependency in
collection-basic.tpm instead of directly in scheme-full.tpm, the install
program doesn't notice.  There are other cases.

I could add the necessary dependencies to scheme*.tpm, but I'm worried
that it will mess up Debian et al. at this late date.  Since it causes

installation scripts next time, I think I'll leave it.

    On a more minor note, if one is running the installation in a
    standard 25x80 terminal, one cannot see the first few lines of

This also will be fixed next time, one way or another.  As the earlier
