Hmmm, all xargs related problems seem to be fixed in the meanwhile. All
packages mentioned in that section are installed, exept for mozilla which is
in state building on kiivi. I made a note in the wiki and the xargs section
could be removed as soon as mozilla is installed as well, I think.
Maybe some bugs needs to get closed, too. 

Some packages under Bugs are already installed, too, and maybe should be
removed from the "pkgs" list, whereas gconftool-2 still hangs.

http://ftp-master.debian.org/~jeroen/d-i.out shows some needed udebs, mainly
from klibc, that aren't uptodate. I don't know if those udebs from
wireless-tools are of any use for m68k at all during installation time,
especially because some subarchs will be dropped for etch m68k. 

Back to (paid) work... ;)
