Well, I was, finally (after comparing to my install script that has been
working for about a decade now, with the only difference that package
selection is made by category).  That's a very interesting bug: switch
the order of the -l and -R options and everything works as intended.
That'll be fun to find in the source.

Run the above with the --verbose switch on and you'll see that setup
fails to recognize the setup.ini file and consequently decides that the
packages it should install (and recognizes correctly as far as I can
tell from the output) are not installable.
