OK, I got to this point: if all packages used invoke-rc.d then I could
solve my problem with installing packages under chroot by installing a
policy-rc.d script that returned 101 if the runlevel is "unknown". All
I have to do is to mask /var/run, which I already do. Two questions:

1) The command "runlevel" returns "unknown" and exits in error, will this
   error status do something bad to invoke-rc.d?

2) What does invoke-rc.d do if the runlevel is "unknown"? Maybe I would
   not have to do anything after all, if the policy was followed.
