Nothing is wrong with kiwi.

Any package marked with bootinclude="true" is installed in the initrd created by kiwi. If the files provided by the RPM are not in the strip list they disappear again during initrd pruning. The secion "How to add missing tools/libraries?" in the KIWI documentation http://doc.opensuse.org/projects/kiwi/doc/ explains how this works.

Yes, this is a bit cumbersome and we can probably do better. However, following the documentation does the trick ;)

HTH,
Robert
