You're ending up using http://www.emdebian.org/crush in the call to

What was the working directory at this point?
$ pwd

What is the contents of /etc/emsource.conf ?

Something has definitely gone wrong there. I suspect that you haven't
put the machine directory in the right place, it needs to be directly
beneath the emdebian working directory set in /etc/emsource.conf which
can be adjusted using debconf via dpkg-reconfigure:

$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure libemdebian-tools-perl

Set the working directory in the questions shown.

The thing is that the working directory was really intended for
building packages and the rootfs packages just used that as a default.
It needs a bit of a review really.

It's part of the reason why multistrap is better for Grip.
