I got this a few days ago and was going to file a bug. It's cause by the
fact that on jessie, /usr/sin/init.lxc already exists; there's no need
to copy it from /usr/lib/lxc/lxc-init.

I worked around it by adding an additional guard in bin/make-base-vm:
	# Fix lxc issue
	if [! -f $OUT-bootstrap/usr/sbin/init.lxc]
