Having a fdisk-udeb package would be nice for the installer, so ifwhen
you have the time.  Look at bug 156648 for more information (and the
debian-installer module in debian-boot cvs).  I'd like to get
debian-installer working on *BSD as early as possible, so we can weed
out any Linux-centrisism.

We already do that for the Hurd and the various arches, I doubt *BSD
will be much different.  (libc6 is libc6.1 on alpha and ia64, iirc.)
please submit wishlist patches against debootstrap.
