As Brian already said, debootstrap is just a bunch of scripts, so no 
compiling involved.

I'll quote the long description of the package

    debootstrap is used to create a Debian base system from scratch, 
    without requiring the availability of dpkg or apt. It does this by 
    downloading .deb files from a mirror site, and carefully unpacking 
    them into a directory which can eventually be chrooted into.
