Package: debootstrap
Version: 1.0.64
Severity: normal

make devices.tar.gz runs MAKEDEV, so the instructions to run debootstrap
from source don't work on !debian.

setup_devices contains old code to bind mount /dev when it's managed by
devfs. Updating that code to check for /dev managed by udev and
bind mounting then might be one approach to improve this. The resulting
chroot would need to have /dev/ bind mounted into it in order to be
used, which seems reasonable.

Alternatively, a debootstrap tarball could be provided targeting this
use case, including a prebuilt devices.tar.gz.

Alternatively, the devices.tar.gz Makefile target could, if MAKEDEV is
not in path, just tar up the system's /dev to make it.

I suspect that some people in this situation download the .deb from
debian and manually unpack it to get a prebuilt devices.tar.gz. Although
this requires both ar and (for no good reason) xz, which are not
universally available outside debian systems.

This should be solved by debootstrap no longer making use of MAKEDEV and
devices.tar.gz gone.
