yum, rpm and febootstrap _are_ in Debian (as of last week), so it'll

I've got some packages of febootstrap and libguestfs which you can try

The febootstrap package is reasonable.  The libguestfs packaging is a
bit crap, although it does work.

Guido Gunter, who I think is on this list, contacted me about doing a
