I've not had Internet connectivity until now, everything went ok too in real

· Configurations: Same as in VMs.

Issues corrected:
 - Texinfo and bash scriplets work using the last ones (when ftp ISOs and
using a mirror already synced).
 - No more dependency cycles as consequence.

Issue detected (not important):
 - If /tmp is separated to another partition: When mounting partitions it
gets different permissions that the ones it should have (755 instead of
1777). It's shown to the user in form of warnings during install of the
package filesystem:

warning: directory permissions differ on tmp
filesystem: 755 package: 1777

Anyway it's corrected. /tmp appears to have the correct permissions after
installation (seen when mounted after rebooting).

I'll try again x86_64 images and reply about the grub problem. I could
reboot and enter the new installed system, I remember it clearly because I
confirmed it was a x86_64 install (running "uname -m" inside the installed
system). Though the machine in which it was installed already had the MBR of
that disk altered to load grub from the boot partition (I tried i686 images
first). I'll tell you if it works or not in some minutes.
