I've been building kernels, including with initramfs, and I don't have
dracut(8) installed? In today's git:

$ find . -type f | xargs grep -i dracut
./tools/testing/ktest/sample.conf:#POST_INSTALL = ssh user@target
/sbin/dracut -f /boot/initramfs-test.img $KERNEL_VERSION
./tools/testing/ktest/examples/kvm.conf:# that uses dracut for its
initfs. The POST_INSTALL will be executed
./tools/testing/ktest/examples/kvm.conf:POST_INSTALL = ${SSH}
/sbin/dracut -f /boot/initramfs-test.img $KERNEL_VERSION
