extlinux dependent issue


Hi,

I'm surprised that "syslinux{,-common}" are in "main", see
https://packages.ubuntu.com/bionic/syslinux{,-common} and "extlinux" is
in "universe", see https://packages.ubuntu.com/bionic/extlinux, while
all belongs to the same upstream source.

Arch doesn't split syslinux.

$ pacman -Ql syslinux | grep /usr/bin/.
syslinux /usr/bin/extlinux
syslinux /usr/bin/gethostip
syslinux /usr/bin/isohybrid
syslinux /usr/bin/isohybrid.pl
syslinux /usr/bin/keytab-lilo
syslinux /usr/bin/lss16toppm
syslinux /usr/bin/md5pass
syslinux /usr/bin/memdiskfind
syslinux /usr/bin/mkdiskimage
syslinux /usr/bin/ppmtolss16
syslinux /usr/bin/pxelinux-options
syslinux /usr/bin/sha1pass
syslinux /usr/bin/syslinux
syslinux /usr/bin/syslinux-install_update
syslinux /usr/bin/syslinux2ansi

But Arch has got no default bootloader, while Ubuntu anyway defaults to
grub 2.

Regards,
Ralf
