Hm, I did not find a script with such name or similar name.

I checked out debian-cd from svn, extracted iso of first full cd and I fetched 
the source from debian-installer (via apt-get source). I also downloaded the 
source of debootstrap.

Which package did I miss to install? - or to which package does the cited 
script belong to?

Hm, I found the *.postinst scripts in my active desktop system, but not in any 
of the source parts. I guess, I stil miss parts of the puzzle.

But I just discovered docs about debian blend system - and I think, that's 
what I was looking for.

kind regards
