Package: debootstrap
Version: 0.3.3
Severity: normal


I've installed a sid chroot using debootstrap (unstable on sarge), and
wasn't able to send bug reports from within using reportbug (that's my
actual problem).
Digging a bit into it, I found out that:
1. /usr/bin/mail is installed but not through dpkg:
$ dpkg -S /usr/bin/mail
dpkg: /usr/bin/mail not found.
2. a dependency is missing:
$ mail -s testchroot user@mail.com
mail: error while loading shared libraries: liblockfile.so.1: cannot
open shared object file: No such file or directory
3. after installation of liblockfile1, mail doesn't complain anymore and
   seems to work, though something is still wrong, but I think that's
   another story.

Thanks, Eric

/usr/bin/mail cannot be found by dpkg because it is an alternatives

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 22 Dec 16  2008 /usr/bin/mail -> /etc/alternatives/mail*

bsd-mailx is not included in the chroot created by debootstrap
for current stable, testing, or unstable.

Looks like it was included before, and the package apparently had
broken dependencies, but this old bug should be closed.
