The actual install commands are obviously missing :(

  rpm     --root          $RootDir --install $packagelist
  yum     --installroot   $RootDir   install $packagelist
  apt-get -o RPM::RootDir=$RootDir   install $packagelist

You may need to put some basic files (like /dev/null, /etc/fstab) into
the rootdir first; rpm probably needs to initialised before:

  rpm --root $RootDir --initdb
