so I wrote this hook

which is properly called by fai, but the problem is that $FAI_CONFIGDIR
is undefined in the environement where the hook script is running

is there any other way to access the config space ? (using $PWD would
work but it does not look like a super safe solution)

otherwise I am thinking of simply installing the needed packages
directly in the hook.

You know an upstream is nice when they even accept m68k patches.
