We do take care to only mount /run at boot time, so it should never
be mounted in a chroot.  When migrating from /var/run in a chroot,
we also take care to not do any bind mounting.  In consequence, it
should never be mounted during a debootstrap, but it certainly
wouldn't hurt for debootstrap to attempt to umount it just in case
something else does mount it.

This is regarding making /etc/mtab a symlink?  This is still a work in
progress; I haven't yet got around to looking at what needs fixing.
It's also blocked on libmount support being added to nfs-utils.  Thanks
for the list of packages though--I'll look at them in more detail and
file bugs when I have time.

Sorry about the sendsigs bit, that was not relevant for debootstrap.
