It doesn't.

# dpkg -S as86
bin86: /usr/bin/as86

..the file /usr/bin/as86 is in package bin86.  But that's only helpful on
a box where bin86 is already installed.  So you would need to go to
http://www.debian.org/distrib/packages and search for as86 in the *second*
search thing on that page (people always mistakenly try the first one and
ask me why it doesn't work) - you want "Search the Contents of the Latest
Release".  Type in "as86".
