Based on my sparse knowledge on the d-i porting efforts on the
existing archs, I believe it is mostly these steps:

 - get 'make demo' working, making sure cdebconf and the d-i framework
   is ok

 - fix booting (CD/floppy/tape/net/whatever) to get d-i started on a
   blank machine

 - check and improve HW detection

 - fix partitioning (seem to be arch dependent if this is needed or

 - look at kernel selection issues

 - fix boot loader installation

Some archs of course run into other and stranger problems, but these
are the ones than need to be addressed on all archs.
