Is there an %include directive in either /etc/tor/torrc or wherever
your distribution keeps the defaults torrc?

I'm not sure this feature has been implemented in the Debian torrc
files yet. Some distributions don't change their configs based on
alpha features: alpha features sometimes change.

Others are just busy, and take time to update.

You probably need a %include directive in /etc/tor/torrc.
If you get this working, please submit a patch to the Debian bug tracker.
