Sven, is the tarball in sunsite's contrib such an old tarball? I have used
that one to start my Debian install. Also, I forgot to use the p flag to untar
it (Actually I didn't even know about it).

What's wrong with my system now and is there any way to fix it without
reinstalling from scratch? That would save me a lot of time, apart from that I
would probably have to redownload a lot of stuff.
