debootstrap probably breaks because the file is called .tgz but is
actually a tar archive.

998:tbm@auric: ..s-i386/base-images-current] zcat basedebs.tgz | tar -vtf - | less
zcat: basedebs.tgz: not in gzip format
1000:tbm@auric: ..s-i386/base-images-current] file basedebs.tgz
basedebs.tgz: GNU tar archive

debootstrap has:
  if [ "${UNPACK_TARBALL%.tar}" != "$UNPACK_TARBALL" ]; then
    (cd "$TARGET" && tar -xf "$UNPACK_TARBALL")
  elif [ "${UNPACK_TARBALL%.tgz}" != "$UNPACK_TARBALL" ]; then
    (cd "$TARGET" && zcat "$UNPACK_TARBALL" | tar -xf -)
