Please, lets solve this generally rather than on an arch-by-arch

dbootstrap should be clever enough to sense that a given CD-ROM is a
normal, official one and act accordingly, e.g., suck that stuff in
without further prompting.  This should be the case no matter what the
cmdline argument were.  Rigth now this is not working, at least, not
on i386 when I tested it from 2.2r0 or r1 (not sure).

This is a 2.2r3 issue... 2.2r2 is going out within a few hours and I'm
not doing any more boot-floppies builds for it.
