I may have uncovered my own answer, which raises another question.
I looked at the debian-cd script, and I discovered that it's actually asking for the package in ./tmp/cd-build/lenny/CD1/pool/main/d/...
When I examined that directory, I found my package (dc-system) was missing from that location and therefore was causing the build to err.
This brings a few other questions to my mind now.
1) What is the best way to include that package to that location? Can it be simply copied to that directory?
2) What is the likely reason it was not included in the first place even though I specified the local package directory? I'm confused as to how the script decided not to include it.
Thanks in advance.
