Hi all,

as of version 1.2.2 core/nfs-utils depends on opt/libcap, I've 
overseen this new dependency and committed the update, sorry for 
that. This issue has been reported [1], the corresponding commit 
to nfs-utils is here [2].

We have at least three options now:
a) downgrade nfs-utils to 1.2.1
b) move libcap and libattr from opt to core
c) move nfs-utils from core to opt

I tend towards b) because the new version comes with a lot of
fixes and improvements [3] and most users might have libcap 
installed anyway, it's part of our ISO and cdrkit depends on it.


Thanks and best regards
