Well, debconf 0.9.41 is now in woody.

How's this going?

fdutils 5.3-3.1 is in woody as of tomorrow, and should be non-interactive.

I've applied the "export LANG=C" part of this, but not the rest. I'd really
rather it be handled elsewhere. :-/ (If it's not something needed for the
chroot an autobuilder would do, I'd rather not include code for it)

Could someone see about adding this (and the termwrap thing) into
dbootstrap?  If that really is too hard, I'll add them in anyway...
