I noticed that coreutils doesn't BuildRequires: libcap-dev
If it did, it would auto enable support for copying capabilities.
Oh indeed, thanks! I have updated our package with the new build dependency.
Also I thought it worth mentioning that coreutils now supports
being built as a single multicall binary (like busybox),
where all functionality is available within 1M,
which could be useful for containers etc.
See the Fedora coreutils-single package for an example of
how this is leveraged from RPM.
We would need to switch over completely to the multicall binary for us
to use it. Are there any downsides to this approach for when disk
usage doesn't need to be absolutely minimal?
