If the Build-Depends ensure that I have the version of debootstrap
installed, which is needed later on for the boot-floppies, the chances are
much better that this version actually exists for my arch and will be used
in the build, no?
I know its not needed, I know its not needed, I know its not needed. I just
like to have the right packages available _before_ I start building since an
m68k build takes about a day. And maybe you know how much noice a 12 year
old computer makes when it is standing 3m from your bed...

Or did you want to say we do not need a certain version of debootstrap in
the build at all?
