I think this is caused by the debian mirroring structure. Non-US is typically
and only a few mirrors have a symlink so that
also works.

So, you can try entering [server]/debian-non-US on the make-pseudo-image
command line (instead of just [server]/debian). And of course first make sure
the mirror is actually carrying non-US ;-)

And if even that doesn't work, that's no problem. Just start the rsync
command, and it will fetch the missing stuff directly from the CD image on the
server. (There shouldn't be a very large drop in efficiency, you've got most 
of it already.)
