That's definitely a bug in debootstrap. In the future it's more and more
likely that we'll have arch-qualified dependencies in the bases packages,
so this has to be fixed. I am therefore cloning and reassigning the bug.

Note that arch qualification is automatically added by dpkg-query, so
we'll have to mangle the output.
