Ok, right; so what I've been trying to do is dynamically initialize
/var (e.g. when gdm starts up, if /var/lib/gdm doesn't exist, it's
created), but I forgot to do a build of the latest "ginitscripts" on  I've updated the build, but I need to do more work
on /var.

Yeah, pull-components is kind of a hack.  I have some ideas for
how to improve it though.

I've only been testing things locally, but I hadn't done the
full clean run-through; e.g. I still had an old /var lying around
which hid problems.  I'm trying a full clean install today myself.

I've pushed your easy-fixes branch, with one minor adjustment to the
pull-components fix.  Thanks!
