netboot: lvm unable to find libreadline and libncurses

Bug Description

Binary package hint: debootstrap

Not sure of the package but...

intrepid Alpha 4
netboot install using PXE
'expert' install mode
loaded 'lvm' and 'partition' modules

It seems all the lvm tools require libreadline and libncurses in order to function. These are missing from the bootstrap setup though.

My own temporary fix involved downloading and extracting the two libraries ( and and placing them where lvm tools expect to find them. A little tedious.
