And that's what it is. There's absolutely no problem with
debootstrapping a Devuan jessie on Debian wheezy amd64 using either
amd64 or i386 (if the kernel supports this) and in my opinion, the error
messages you wrote about earlier are impossible to reproduce in the way
you claimed to have seen them. In particular, the

/bin/bash: /lib/i386-linux-gnu/i686/cmov/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.15' not found (required by /bin/bash)

refers to the C library from the libc-i686 (wheezy) package and no -i686
package gets installed when running debootstrap as you wrote.
