Excuse me for not doing a fresh install in a few months, but has the bug
been fixed where it always used to fsck first thing after a fresh
install because the it thought the last mount was in the future?  I
vaguely remember this was a timezone or localtime issue, but the last
time I did a fresh install this was still happening and thus
xfsprogs/jfsutils/etc would be required.
