alternatives:
1. You could use alpine-1.8.x as vserver host

2. the alpine util-vserver package contains a subdir
called /usr/lib/util-vserver/distributions/alpine that you could just
extract from the 1.8.x apk and copy to your etch server. (iirc i did so
on a debian box here with success)

then you need a template taball which we unfortunally dont have.

Can be created from an 1.9.0 env like this:

sudo apk add --initdb --root /new alpine-baselayout
cd /new
sudo tar -czf ../alpine-template.tar.gz *

I did one for youe and uploaded here:
http://dev.alpinelinux.org/~ncopa/alpine/alpine-vserver-template-20090304.tar.gz


Then you use this template with:
 ... -m template -- -t /path/to/alpine-vserver-template-20090304.tar.gz -d alpine

as explained here:
