Seems to me that the reason is that you are working from a partial mirror
instead of a full mirror.
debian-cd is written to work with a full mirror. A partial mirror can be
OK, but you currently do need at least a number of i386 packages on the
mirror for a build to succeed.
A patch for this issue has already been proposed, but it is unknown if
that will make Lenny. The proposed patch should fix this for amd64, but
probably not for all possible architectures.
