debootstrap is the one.  "make check" in 3.0.14 picked up the problem.
Once installed everything started to work.

Description: Bootstrap a basic Debian system

 without requiring the availability of dpkg or apt. It does this by
 downloading .deb files from a mirror site, and carefully unpacking them
 into a directory which can eventually be chrooted into.
