Check the package build - you may find that the udeb is actually what
you need. udeb's in the Grip pool are completely unmodified compared to
the ones available from Debian. In this case, debian/rules has two
different targets. Compare the $(MAKE) options for mdadm.udeb and mdadm.

Too late to add it to squeeze now.

You can manually add the package from Debian using multistrap:


Or, you can gain a little bit of space and convert any package from
Debian into an Emdebian Grip package using 'apt-grip' which is in the
emdebian-grip package. Install that on a desktop system, specify the
architecture to download and convert, then put the converted package
into a local repository and add that to your multistrap config.
