debootstrap problems:

Only a little testing done so far, but these are the issues currently:

1. for some reason, when grip-config is unpacked, empty directories
that exist in the package (not just in the postinst) are not created. 
/usr/share/info /usr/share/man/man1 and /usr/share/man/man8
are required. grip-config might have to have some pointless files in
those directories.

2. it appears that /etc/hosts does need to be copied from a working
system for ssmtp to configure properly. I'll have to investigate if the
need for something other than exim4 can be fixed later in the setup
because ssmtp just doesn't seem to have a postinst that is sufficiently
robust for debootstrap.

The rest I'll get to later but I won't have time for a few days.

These things should only be affecting debootstrap - d-i should be
