poudriere-image(8) and the required /usr/freebsd-dist files for installation

Greetings hackers,

I have heard a lot about the poudriere-image(8), and it seems to be
widely used despite maturity.

I gave it a try, and it indeed works fantastically. But there are a
few things I could not yet find a proper way to resolve. The most
important one is that the final image does not contain the required
/usr/freebsd-dist files, and therefore it either should fetch them
or fails to proceed with the installation.

How would you handle it when the ``packagelist'' is provided and
you cannot fetch and overlay the files from upstream?

I appreciate any help. Cheers.
