Hmm, the rootstrap contains the "build-essential" package.  If we put a
newer version of the build-essential package into extras-devel, then
that newer version will be installed by 'apt-get upgrade'.

If apt-get upgrade does indeed run during a build.  I no longer think it
actually does.  Checking the build log of maemo-optify certainly shows
no signs of running apt-get upgrade.

Which apt-get install?  We just add a dependency on maemo-optify to
build-essential and apt-get upgrade does the rest.  No?

I'll put a newer version of build-essential into extras-devel and see
what happens, fingers crossed.
