[arch-general] Why there is no NetworkManager in ArchISO

my Arch install is a desktop computer connected to the Internet, but I
don't use NM and actually even Evolution (the GNOME MUA) is running.
I simply have two scripts, one based upon "modprobe -v pppoe; ip link
set", the other based upon "dhcpcd". Currently I use the latter.
I could copy those scripts to whatever Linux I want to use, to let what
ever init system is used, start those scripts.
One day I installed NM for testing purpose, it's still installed, but
[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ systemctl status NetworkManager.service
● NetworkManager.service - Network Manager
Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/NetworkManager.service;
NM is much to complicated for my taste. Why learning how to use rocket
science for a task, that actually could be done with a few idiotproof
I even didn't notice that for my minimal Ubuntu install NM is installed at
[root at archlinux rocketmouse]# systemd-nspawn -qD /mnt/moonstudio dpkg -l | grep network-m
ii network-manager-dev:amd64 1.2.6-0ubuntu0.16.04.1 amd64 network management framework (development files)
[root at archlinux rocketmouse]#
Ok, seemingly I needed the header files as a build dependency ;).
