I've found that on the new live/install combo CD that a number of
packages have been dropped and it looks like build essential may well be
another that has been sacrificed. I'd assume this is due to space
constraints of a combined live/install CD.

children were thrown overboard, we made those allegations on the basis
of that advice, and until I get Defence advice to the contrary I will
maintain that position".

The Truth: "I left him in no doubt that there was no evidence, that
there were no children thrown overboard."
