Bug#493065: debootstrap fakechroot variant fails

forcemerge 493065 588773
retitle 493065 debootstrap fakechroot variant fails due to missing PATH
tag 493065 patch

this fails because chroot is in /usr/sbin, which isn't in PATH for
normal users by default anymore. i've attached a preliminary patch that
fixes this in debootstrap, but i wonder if it wouldn't be more
appropriate to change fakeroot instead?  it seems like any fakeroot
environment should include /usr/sbin and /sbin in the path, but that
isn't currently the case.
