Definitively not a feature, it's supposed to create a cluster. Is
there any abnormal output when you apt-get install postgresql-8.1?

It will not create a cluster if you removed, but not purged the
package, or /etc/postgresql/8.1/<something> already exists. Also, it
will attempt, but fail to create a cluster if your default locale is
invalid (there are more reasons of course, but this is the most
common). If you do

  sudo pg_createcluster 8.1 main --start

what does it say?
