Sounds like a d-i problem; contrary to your bug summary, xserver-xfree86
*doesn't* depend on read-edid, because the package does not exist for the
alpha architecture.

Description: the XFree86 X server
 The XFree86 X server is an X server for several architectures and operating
 systems; its architecture was completely redesigned for the 4.0 release, and
 features a loadable module system in which required modules are loaded on
 demand by a single server binary as opposed to the video card-specific X
 servers of the 3.x release.
 The XFree86 server supports most modern graphics hardware from most vendors,
 and supersedes most version 3.x XFree86 X servers.  See
 <http://www.xfree86.org/4.3.0/Status.html> for information on its support for
 your particular hardware.
 If the discover, mdetect and read-edid packages are installed, this package's
 configuration script will use them to attempt automatic configuration of the
 X server based on your information returned by your video card, mouse, and
 Note that on the HP-PA, MIPS, and SuperH architectures, the server's
 loadable module support is not present, and therefore the XFree86 server is a
 (very large) single binary.
 This package suggests the libglide2 package, which is necessary for the
 XFree86 X server's "glide" video driver to work with 3Dfx Interactive's
 Voodoo Graphics and Voodoo2 cards.  Users of other video cards need not
 install libglide2.
