Hmm...I put 'sed' in the debian package wrapper scripts since Debian put's
basename in /usr/bin and if you don't use an initrd script and you have your
/usr partition on LVM, you can't use the wrapper...

Is there an easy way we can work around this?  Maybe hack up the
create_initrd script a bit more?  I can just adjust it in the debian
packages too i guess.
