virt-rescue fail when supermin don't find cpio

sh: cpio: command not found
supermin: (cd '/var/tmp/supermin055115.tmpdir/init.d' && (echo .; ls -1) | cpio --quiet -o -H newc) > '/var/tmp/.guestfs-0/appliance.d.9e4lqbtv/initrd': command failed, see earlier errors

Additional info:
packages version:
- libguestfs 1.42.0-3
- supermin 5.2.0-2

Steps to reproduce:
- Make sure extra/cpio isn’t installed
# virt-rescue -d <any virtual machine domain> -v
// check the attached log

Note: supermin can skip the build process if it already exist (if-newer flag), in this case supermin don't need cpio
supermin: acquiring lock on /var/tmp/.guestfs-0/lock
supermin: if-newer: output does not need rebuilding
libguestfs: finished building supermin appliance

Both related packages on Debian buster have cpio as dependency:
supermin =>
libguestfs =>
