Well, nic-shared-modules != nic-shared-modules-2.2.25-mac-di. Inside d-i
tools like anna know that the one is equivilant to the other when the
right 2.2.25 kernel is running, but apt in the build system does not
know about that.

Also, we use apt to download udebs but then manually install them from a
list with udpkg, so it probably wouldn't work even if you got past the
first issue.

Is there any reson you can't remove the nic-shared-modules line from
pkg-lists/ntivehd/m68k.cfg? Or if you need it there for 2.6, use:

nic-shared-modules-${kernel:Version} [2.6]

(Do note that I don't have any plans to sync the new m68k kernel udebs
in to testing and we want the d-i tree to continue to build against testing.
If you want me to sync those udebs in for the beta I can.)
