Hi!

Well, I've now got a chroot[1]-environment with quite most of all
important packages installed the correct and ight way (TM). However,
some of them fail because neither whiptail nor one of the debconf
variants is available. I've not yet a native compiler; could someone
*please* try to build a .deb of these packages?

[1] chroot seems to be little bit buggy to me in the declinux root fs...

    root@localhost#> chroot base_tgz_dir/ /bin/bash

    ...results in "cwd: Can't get current path" (from memory). Doing
    a "ls" shows base_tgz_dir (and other directory entries) which
    should no longer be available nor visible to the process!
    chdir()ing into base_tgz_dir manually after doing the chroot
    command fixes that, but that's a bit confusing to me...
