That's great, thanks a lot Raphael!

I debugged this issue myself this evening and came up with a patch on my
own. Your's is nicer und more generic though. So I'm happy to scrap mine.

Just for the record: I can confirm it fixes the problem in dpkg-shlibdeps.

I've CCed the debootrap bug, so the debian-boot people are aware that a
fix for dpkg is available and a revert in debootstrap is not necessary.

Guillem, it would be great if you can upload a fixed dpkg soon.
Julien Cristau told me, that he didn't want to see this issue unresolved
for too long.

Thanks everyone involved in getting this resolved.
