I have the same problem with my powerpc builds.  I had to remove dpkg-perl
to get things to run (and the install worked fine after that).

It's being worked on...a first cut is checked into CVS.  Unfortunately, the
number of task packages available is not sufficient for it to be useful yet,
and no "profile" tasks packages have been made so someone can just select
a "Home Computer" profile or something like that.

It's a good start, though.
