Looks like pb hit the nail on the head.

yah, that looks like the problem.

I tried that but rootdisk.sh wasn't happy, it wants the libraries
there.  It sort of makes sense because archs that don't do library
reduction won't have mklibs run, so they won't even get a copy
of an un-reduced library, unless we want to add a dummy mklibs run
that would do that.  So . . . at the risk of proposing an inelegant hack:

Appears to work.  The flashing screen went away, and I had a
choice of languages.  I'll drop down and do a full install now and see
if anything else turns up.  If all is cool and no one squeals I'll
commit the above patch.
