This works fine for me, for example:

import:

    debian_2_0::             debian_2_0
    debian_3_0::             debian_3_0
    debian_testing::         debian_testing
    debian_unstable::        debian_unstable
    openbsd_3_4::            openbsd_3_4
    openbsd_3_5::            openbsd_3_5
    darwin_power_macintosh:: mac_10_3

Your /bin/cp shell command seems a little wonky. Why not use a copy:
section?
