It didn't work after all. I got a kernel running, but debootstrap
doesn't want to cooperate. It quits with an error that it cannot find a
script. It takes a random string from the pbuilder configuration and
tries lo look for a script at that place instead of
/usr/lib/pbuilder/scripts. Weird.

I think I'm going to take the easy way out and install a minimal dapper
64 in a small partition and use that to build amd64 binaries.
