I guess the real question is what you're trying to do. If you want to
extract the contents of a .deb archive but you're not actually
interested in using dpkg for your system, you could simply use dpkg -x.
If you wish to use dpkg, you could probably just create an empty
status file to get started - but the real question in this case is why
you're not starting with a Debian base.

Yes, Debian fully supports ARM.
What are you trying to do exactly, and which ARM platform are you on?
