Bug#584992: debian-installer: "Install the base system" fails "configuring required packages"

Package: debian-installer
Version: PowerPC Businesscard Binary-1 20100608-04:27
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

Installing with sid_d-i:
	Daily build #3 for powerpc, using installer build from sid
	This build finished at Tue Jun 8 04:29:30 UTC 2010.
	[   ] debian-testing-powerpc-businesscard.iso            08-Jun-2010 06:28   67M  

in "expert" mode (may not be relevant?)

gets to "Install the base system" and gets "Failure while configuring required packages"

The last few lines of syslog are:
