 This cannot be right, /etc/mtree/special is primarily for mtree
 security checks.  We cannot prescribe the user where their localtime
 symlink points to, can we?
 I haven't looked into the details, but two quick drive-by comments...
 Makefs should not crash on input it cannot make sense of.  There must
 be some spec file that tells makefs where localtime symlink points to
 in the image and that file can't be /etc/mtree/special, so you should
 probably try to figure out what that spec file is and why in your case
 it did end up using /etc/mtree/special (#2) and we should fix the
 crash (#1).
