I meant that the relevant file was not changed since 2007.

Reading the debian wiki about /var/run transition  and debian policy
126.96.36.199  I think debian-installer partman-target could only create
/run now. It shouldn't be a problem if initscripts and initramfs-tools
are ready to use /run instead of /var/run.
