        Ok. debootstrap does get beyond that point. Now it fails at:
| I: Configuring base-files...
| I: Configuring libblkid1...
| I: Configuring e2fsprogs...
| I: Configuring gzip...
| I: Configuring dpkg...
| I: Configuring dselect...
| I: Configuring sysvinit-utils...
| I: Configuring login...
| I: Configuring lsb-base...
| I: Configuring procps...
| I: Configuring mount...
| I: Configuring passwd...
| I: Configuring initscripts...
| I: Configuring base-files...
| I: Configuring base-files...
| W: Failure while configuring required packages.

        chrooting into the dir, the error is that base-files postinst
 cannot find awk. mawk had indeed been configured earlier. So, while
 /etc/alternatives/awk exists, and points to mawk, there is no symlink
 /usr/bin/awk created.

        Is the latest dpkg buggy?

Most seminars have a happy ending.  Everyone's glad when they're over.
