i've seen it do this when it can't find ifconfig, although when i tried
this it told me it couldn't find ifconfig...

what you probably should do is go through the chroot manually; start in
a shell, turn on core dumps (ulimit -c unlimited) and run
/usr/bin/debconf /usr/bin/main-menu, when it segfaults you can at least
tell from the core which component is segfaulting.

can we turn on core dumps by default in the make demo target? 

a feature request for joeyh's build system: it'll be nice if somehow
we can build a debug version of the chroot where we don't have all the
size optimizations on the binaries that make debugging difficult...
