OK, well ... debconf actually conflicts with cdebconf, so it looks like
I will have to set up a chroot unless and until that changes. I tried
hacking the debian-installer Packages file to make main-menu et al
depend on cdebconf-udeb instead, then copying in slang.so from cdebconf
proper, but that just segfaulted on 'make demo'. I'll need to
investigate some more, I think.
