This is the build-dep for the deb packaging in the upstream
behlendorf/zfs tree, which lacks direct support for a native ZFS root

The HOWTO assumes that you are using the dajhorn/pkg-zfs packages from
the linked PPA, which are packaged differently and have the necessary
root filesystem support.

Thus, it would be incorrect for me to apply the requested changes.
