I should note that rebootstrap builds much less than a minimal chroot.
It also does not try to execute any of the results.

I did not encounter any ICEs during any builds for any architecture with
rebootstrap yet.

You have two options to achieve that:

1) Check out the rebootstrap git repository, debootstrap a fresh
   throw-away chroot and run bootstrap.sh in there. Takes 6 hours.
   Pointers at https://wiki.debian.org/HelmutGrohne/rebootstrap

2) Submit a patch for git.debian.org:/srv/qa/jenkins.debian.org.git to
   collect build artefacts. Then tell me, so I can trigger a rebuild.
