Well, the obvious fix is to make debootstrap run dpkg with --force-confnew.
The obvious question is, why was this conffile already present on a new
install? Did debootstrap or some other package create it? Either could
be gounds for a bug report. Or was debootstrap ran on a filesystem that
already had a debian install on it? Maybe a partial install from an
earlier failed debootstrap run?
