Working fine with me.  "export LOCAL=1" switched on in CONF.sh

local symlinked in with "contrib", "main" etc.  A full filesystem
../local/binary-all, binary-i386, source/admin, etc

Debian-cd is very fussy about checking.  The .debs and Packages have to be
right.  The task-* .debs need to be properly produced from scratch.  You
cannot get away with modifying an existing package.  I use
dpkg-scanpackages to produce the Packages file in local.  I must admit I
am still have problems with the sources. 

Hope this helps.  Get back to me if you think I can assist.
