Attempting to make the baseline ISO does not work due to missing mkinitcpio (and possibly other packages)

Additional info:
* package version(s): 43-1
* config and/or log files etc.
* link to upstream bug report, if any

Steps to reproduce:
cp -rv /usr/share/archiso/configs/baseline/ $HOME
cd $HOME/baseline
./ -v
This task depends upon

Adding a line to of the baseline profile makes it work:

make_basefs() {
mkarchiso -v -w "${work_dir}" -D "${install_dir}" init
mkarchiso -v -w "${work_dir}" -D "${install_dir}" -p "mkinitcpio linux" install

Thanks for the workaround, Angus. I can confirm it works. The baseline iso was created successfully after that. I wasn't able to login, though. I tried to login as "root", using "root" as the password, but it did not work.
