  I used trial and error.  There aren't too many packages which
 are required so it was mostly a matter of getting yum, then
 seeing which .so files were complained about when you tried
 to run a binary...

  Tested on Ubuntu + Debian only.  It almost certainly will fail
 upon other hosts, since it uses 'alien' as a middle-step.

  Still that can be fixed.  I just need some process to unpack
 a .rpm file without using rpm directly and I'm sure some magic
 combination of ar, etc, will allow that to work.
