sbuild-checkpackages - check the package list in a sbuild chroot
against a reference list
sbuild-checkpackages [-h|--help | -V|--version | -l|--list | -s|--set]
sbuild-checkpackages compares the package list in an sbuild chroot
(dpkg status file) against a reference list of packages. The
differences between the two lists are displayed, showing the changes to
remove and install in order to return the chroot to match the reference
The reference list may be set from the dpkg status file; this must be
done initially in order to have a baseline reference for comparison.
The chroot should only include essential and build-essential packages,
plus the extra packages that sbuild needs such as fakeroot.
