base-files creates /usr/local and empty dirs under /usr/local but only if
/usr/local does not exist (maybe some other package removed /usr/local?)

In either case, I can change this behaviour so that this is only done in
the "first install" of base-files (which is performed by the boot-floppies
on a chrooted environment to create base2_2.tgz). Would this improve
