Actually you're right, this isn't direct.

It will pass libc6 as an argument to apt-cache depends [...], which
then presumably is ignoring it or not printing it in the output for
whatever reason.

There's not an especially easy way to do this without modifying
febootstrap sources:
Then recompiling febootstrap and adding /path/to/febootstrap and
/path/to/febootstrap/helper to $PATH.

I see, so you're suggesting I just manually add a package to pkgs right after
