You'd have to take that up with ftpmaster. I don't really know anything
about the details of how the archive is supposed to work.

Hmm, right. Well, to confirm that, could you wipe your partition and
try again, but this time point the installer to a mirror that we know
does include all the right stuff (say ftp.uk.debian.org for example)?
It would also be interesting to know if you have the same problem
running debootstrap itself on an existing system, with your local
mirror. Just do:
# apt-get install debootstrap
# mkdir /tmp/woody
# debootstrap woody /tmp/woody ftp://ftp.xx.debian.org/...
