yaboot-installer doesn't even run yabootconfig, so this seems
impossible. Can you elaborate on how you discovered that this was the
underlying problem? The only two code paths to that error in
yaboot-installer are:

  mkdir -p /target/proc || \
      die yaboot-installer/mounterr 'Error creating /target/proc'
  mount -t proc none /target/proc || \
      die yaboot-installer/mounterr 'Error mounting /target/proc'
