Installer crashes with JFS /home partition, file system tools not on live images (or in comps)

Description of problem:
During installation of KDE Live i686 version of Fedora 9, every time after
choosing my existing /home partition (JFS), installer crashes and gives out a
bug trace code
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. During installation of live KDE i686 CD choose 'create custom layout'
2. Choose existing /home parition with JFS as /home for fedora
3. Agree on formatting root partition
Window 'Exception occurred' appears and gives a possibility to save bugtrace
Fedora should install on formatted root partition and use my old /home
partition with JFS filesystem (ar, at least, inform me, that JFS is not
supported and I need to choose another filesystem for /home partition)
I posted bugtrace generated by anaconda on
Created attachment 305408 [details]
Bugtrace from anaconda
Jesse - this sounds like the jfsutils package isn't getting included for
anaconda to pull jfs_tune from when we're making the stage2 image. Thoughts?
The compose manifest has:
# filesystem stuff
The compose log also shows that jfsutils is found and brought in, and also
installed during buildinstall.
However since the original poster was talking about install from /live/, then
that's not pungi land, that's livecd-creator land. And since it's KDE, that's Rex.
none of those are referenced directly in any of the livecd setups, but these
*are* included (from fedora-livecd-9-base.ks):
now to check comps to see if those utils are in any of these groups... in @base,
but listed as optional (ouch).
End result: these aren't on any of the fedora livecd's.
get pulled in somehow, whether that is anaconda Requires or making these default
items in @base, or added to fedora-livecd-9-base.ks or whatever.

These aren't put in because of the space requirements. That's the nature of
trying to fit things on a CD. The bug here is that anaconda doesn't/didn't
detect the lack of these tools when offering you the ability to use them for
ah, gotcha, reassigning back to anaconda d00dz.

I'd also like to point out that anaconda tried to use these tools even though I
asked it not to touch my reiserfs partition (as mentioned in bug 452436).
We've been detecting that filesystems aren't supported if the required utilities
aren't around for a little while now, so I think this one can be closed.
