Welcome to Scratchbox, the cross-compilation toolkit!

Use 'sb-menu' to change your compilation target.
See /scratchbox/doc/ for documentation.

Package: debhelper
Status: install ok installed
Installed-Size: 1
Maintainer: Maemo Integration <integration at maemo.org>
Architecture: all
Source: debhelper
Version: 4.2.32+virtual1
Description: debhelper from Scratchbox

 is provided by Scratchbox.

Doesn't look like it, unless the virtual package is lying. Perhaps
