genhdlist twice with the pkgorder is a very good idea... (and your
script is much more concise than other anaconda wrapper scripts that I
have worked with, so I may just start using it instead ;-)

Unfortunately, none of these issues solved the issue. I still get
'/usr/bin/anaconda' not found errors.

I'm about to give up and dive into the anaconda-runtime to see where
this file precisely is supposed to get copied over so I can maybe add
excessive debugging statements to see why it isn't.
