Okay, I ran through this again this afternoon while I was doing other work. 
I note, for whatever it's worth, that 16MB is no longer enough to run either
the installer or, far more so, dselect without massive swapping.  (the
latter was observed using over 20MB of swap, and vmstat showed three to four
times as many blocks being swapped as otherwise read in during package
installation.  I think installing bo on a 486 with 8M was no slower, but
maybe I misremember.)

The network setup *does* ifconfig, apparently correctly.  I don't know if it
behaved differently the other times or if I misremembered (or just downed
the interface without conscious thought).  All I had to patch by hand was
routing.  I captured the trouble report immediately after it returned to the
menu, ready to perform the network setup again.

debug log attached.

Show me your flowcharts and conceal your tables, and I shall continue
to be mystified.  Show me your tables, and I won't usually need your
flowcharts; they'll be obvious.  -- Brooks
