umm, maybe I wasn't clear.  That won't help, it requires more.  We
don't actually need debootstrap (>= installed on the build
host, rather we need to make sure it gets installed on the target
(installation system).

It is common.sh that grabs packages, typically off a debian mirror, if
the packages are still in incoming then local copies need to be place
in /archive/debian/Incoming/ on the build host.
