dpkg-nondebbin and improper system installation
A number of people have attempted or succeeded in using dpkg-nondebbin
or a dpkg compiled on their local systems to install Debian without
using the bootstrap floppies. As far as I am aware, this will yield a
system that is broken in various ways (non-debian files in the system
directories, things not configured, etc.). At the very least we should
discourage this procedure.
