The makedev package is actually not installed in a Squeeze
deboostrapped chroot because it has priority "required" in Lenny and
"extra" in Squeeze.

This is not supposed to be a problem as debootstrap creates devices
nodes from /usr/share/debootstrap/devices.tar.gz at chroot build time.

But... while debootstrap 1.0.23 bundles a lot of devices in this
tarball, debootstrap 1.0.24 has none at all. Going to file a bug
report against it.

In the meantime, two workarounds are available: either downgrade the
build system to debootstrap 1.0.23, or use "lh config --bootstrap
