Re: sarge debootstrap missing resolve.conf

A long-standing bug.  /etc/resolv.conf should be in basefiles or something
but no package owns it.  Just create it.  It should be owned by root,
writable only by root, and readable by anyone.

The resolvconf package does that.  If you are not using resolvconf you
don't want the symlink.
