More accurately, it's needed to get proper ordering in any case of
building a new chroot.  This doesn't get hit with initializing build
roots due to the fact that they're (currently) done by "install minimal
system, then build deps".  This could change at a point in the future.

But yes, the requirements for things in coreutils must be explicitly
specified, just like anything else.
