This is now in place, and freshly built images (or upgraded images)
will get avahi-daemon installed by default.

And this work for a while, when using a virtual machine on my wheezy
laptop.  But just a few minutes after the freedombox was booted (or
avahi-daemon restarted), the freedombox.local mDNS name is no longer
known.  Anyone know what is going on here?

Still wonder about this one. :)
