You know that you can read busybox' syslog with "logread" and "logread
-f"? (Not sure if the busybox build in d-i supports that, but I would
expect it.)

Slightly offtopic: I intend to provide[1] a .deb package which enables
busybox' syslog as syslogd replacement on Debian.

AFAIK Otavio Salvador managed yesterday at DebCamp to move d-i away
from dhclient and IIRC to udhcpc.
