The RPMs don't package the "livesys" command. I don't know why, but it
looks like they've been like that for a long time, and the packaging
does do that deliberately. Perhaps it should be included, but I'll let
someone else provide a reason for this if there is one.

If it helps, you can get basically the same information from 'fs
sysname', with a little bit more string parsing.
