More Podman work needed

I chose the image because it seemed to have 
everything we need to carry out the process but come to think of it, I 
see no harm in installing packages as a preliminary step in the build 
pipeline. The extra cost of installing packages isn't significant 
considering that we rebuild images less than once per week.

So we can start with centos/centos:stream9 and install podman and 
diffutils and whatever else is needed as a first step.

One thing that did strike me as odd concerning was that when installing packages I had to 
OK the installation of a GPG key, and I wonder why those don't come 
pre-installed on the image and how can I trust the repository if I don't 
have the keys pre-installed (or maybe I can just forget about package 
signatures, if we already trust distro repos in the image building process).

Does that seem reasonable?
