My current incomplete list is:
    bind-utils \
    bridge-utils \
    coreutils \
    dnsmasq \
    e2fsprogs \
    e2fsprogs-resize2fs \
    e2fsprogs-tune2fs \
    findutils \
    gawk \
    grep \
    inetutils-ping \
    inetutils-ping6 \
    inetutils-traceroute \
    iproute2 \
    less \
    net-tools \
    parted \
    pciutils \
    procps \
    sed \
    util-linux \
    vim \
    which \

And it's also incomplete as there's more stuff under inetutils I don't
need (but others may), and I set aside patch/diff/ed and some other
stuff I don't need.  And since some of that stuff comes from
meta-openembedded, it's indeed really not clear how/where a packagegroup
would reside as we need things out of meta-networking.
