You don't need to jump through those multistrap hoops anymore.  You need to
recompile the kernel with CONFIG_X86_X32=y, but after that you can use any
chroot-like setup of your choice.  Point debootstrap to the archive at
http://ftp.debian-ports.org/debian -- it has all required bits.

What works fine is chroot, pbuilder, vserver, etc.  What does not is a
standalone install (bare metal, virtualbox, kvm) due to no grub.

A tit a day keeps the vet away.
