Added a dialog informing you of the problem that lets you continue or abort. 
Also added --ignoremissing as an argument for %packages so that you can just
ignore them and not get prompted

I'm going through Bugzilla closing some bugs that have been marked as Modified
for some period of time.  I believe that most of these issues have been fixed,
so I'm resolving these bugs as Rawhide.  If the bug you are seeing still exists,
please reopen this report and mark it as Reopened.
