For debootstrap, the best place to talk is debian-boot ml.
What problem you had?
I'm learning how to setup a dpkg building environment on my Solaris
machines, without installing Linux. I do want to keep all my Solaris
environment, and just manage a repository of dpkg converted applications
that I will check/build/install/upgrade on top of everything else.
DIR OWNER SYSTEM
/ root solaris
/home/apps me dpkg built applications NFS*
/home/dpkg/* me dpkg administrative files
/usr root solaris
/var root solaris
I then export with NFS /home/apps to serve all workstations : they will
be able to use any of my applications.
Are Debian binaries generally relocatable like this?
In any case, debootstrap is used in Nexenta in order to build zone
filesystems. You might look at files related to the package
nexenta-zones. The zones functionality in the current beta releases
doesn't work out of the box but the coming NCP 1.0 release does. In any
case, it's an easy fix to get the scripts working and have a good
example of debootstrap under Solaris.
