Wait a sec - I think when I tried with the pool udebs it was with a
pre-compiled installer-i386 image not compiling from scratch. I don't
think I have tried compiling only d-i.

My apologies. I'll probably want to close this bug, unless compiling
d-i using apt-gettable udebs also doesn't work.
Perhaps, to avoid anyone else being so confused there could be a readme
or something in the scripts directory explaining that buildscript isn't
necessary unless you're modifying the udeb packages? I think what
happened is that I assumed that because the installer-i386 + udebs
didn't work that I had to build the combo, which was, to my way of
thinking, confirmed by the presence of the packages directory, but
really that's not so.
I'm still a bit concerned by the fact that the d-i repository doesn't
build cleanly, but not as much as when I couldn't get a working
installer (assuming what I'm trying now works).
