The default modules that we place into /boot (menu.c32 vesamenu.c32 
chain.c32 hdt.c32 reboot.c32 poweroff.com) depend on libutil_com.c32, 
libcom32.c32, libmenu.c32, libcom32gpl.c32 (new with syslinux 5.0)

The syslinux-install_update script will need to be updated to include 
these extra modules. I will provide a patch in the next day or two, 
since I'm the original author.

Simply adding the new modules to the script should work, but I want to 
test the following (thus the delay for the patch):
   1) upgrade from syslinux4 -> syslinux5
   2) new install using syslinux 5
