Please don't top post.

 From my e2fspros log, I have:

Not building fsck wrapper
    MKINSTALLDIRS /sbin /usr/share/man/man8
    INSTALL /sbin/e2fsck
    LINK /sbin/fsck.ext2
    LINK /sbin/fsck.ext3
    LINK /sbin/fsck.ext4
    LINK /sbin/fsck.ext4dev

The programs are being installed by e2fsprogs.  It's the wrapper script 
that is installed by util-linux.
