Problem adding starcluster to existing image

Hi, this question has got to be an easy one to answer, but I couldn't
contrive the right search terms to find it. I am trying to launch a
starcluster using an AMI which I already have. Briefly, I installed
starcluster on my AMI (ami-323f5c02), I then launched the small cluster
using the default starcluster without issue (using ami-765b3e1f for both
both MASTER and NODE).

Now, I changed the following two values in starcluster's configuration:

NODE_IMAGE_ID = ami-323f5c02
MASTER_IMAGE_ID = ami-323f5c02

And try to launch the same cluster, and I get the following error:

>>> Starting NFS server on master
!!! ERROR - Error occured while running plugin
!!! ERROR - remote command 'source /etc/profile && /etc/init.d/nfs
!!! ERROR - start' failed with status 127:
!!! ERROR - bash: /etc/init.d/nfs: No such file or directory

Naturally, I installed NFS on the image and rolled a new one and tried
again, but that didn't help. I'm guessing starcluster has a custom NFS

Do I have to start with a starcluster image? If so, how do I absorb updates
-- that would seem like a great deal of work. I couldn't find a page which
said, "Starcluster needs the following packages: ..."

I'm on a stock ubuntu 12.04 64x image.

thanks much in advance, this is going to be an amazing time saver.
