Default Add anaconda-runtime to the package list for buildinstall

I was. buildinstall recently changed how it works. You no longer point
it at a directory of packages, you point it at a yum repo. You can also
have it output to a different directory. So my plan, which will take
some modification to createrepo (Seth is already aware of this and has
it planned), is to use pungi to wire up all the repos configured in the
kickstart file and generate a "reference" repo. This repo would be
"local" to the file system, use a combined comps grouping (for all the
repos that you wish to consider for groupdata (another change coming for
pykickstart)), but the repodata itself would have hrefs to the packages
locations in the other repos. You get local repodata without having to
mirror all the packages. Buildinstall would be pointed at that repo,
and it would download (insert caching dances here) the packages it needs
in order to make install images. Then (well, still not sure of the step
orders) pungi would use it's manifest to create the package trees and
insert the produced images into the trees.

That's the fairly rough overview.
