Just to be clearer.. by A and D pkgs I believe you meant it should include a1, 
ap1 and d1 packages

ap1 (does not need to be fully installed) is needed for diffutils, texinfo and
groff (texinfo and groff arn't really required on host distro but some 
scripts "may" complain (not sure) if not present) Also, ap1 include vim if you 
want it.
