 What you can do is this:

  1) Move every binary you think you should need from /usr/bin,/bin to
/usr/local/bin (and libs, etc.). Then remove everything in usr (outside of
/usr/local, of course).
 2) Start the install process. When you have the target partition mounted,
ask for a shell and remove /etc, /lib, /bin, /sbin, /var and /boot.
 3) Install Debian.
