Yeah, but the version that matters is the one in the debian-etch devkit,
not the one in the rootstrap.  Run dpkg --version, and you will be
surprised... :-)

    @ apt-cache policy dpkg
      Installed: 1.14.25maemo2+0m5

    @ dpkg --version
    Debian `dpkg' package management program version 1.13.25 (i386).

    @ which dpkg

    @ /usr/bin/dpkg --version
    Debian `dpkg' package management program version 1.13.25 (i386).

    @ SBOX_REDIRECT_TO_DIRS= /usr/bin/dpkg --version
    Debian `dpkg' package management program version 1.14.25 (i386).
