A better workaround may be to choose the minimal installation, since
this should be the absolute barebone install.

There are two things you can do:

* check the source to figure out what minimal install selects and select
that in your customDist.


* select and installCommit first the minimal install, then select and
install commit your custom dist. Yes, it's a waste if some things are
overwritten, but it should work.

If minimal install doesn't work, then you've found a serious bug in the
new sysinstall.
