Installing genhdlist to Allow Patching


genhdlist (probably means 'generate header list' from RPM-speak) is a utility that manages the installer 'hdlist*' files, using the comps (or components) file that is now an xml file. These files are found in RedHat/base/ on the CD images.
My perl update script uses genhdlist to update properly the install file tree.
