oops. it's apparently broken:

should be fixed soon.

i think it works properly with using "--conf simple-cdd.conf":

   # i've found ftp to be much more reliable for the wget part...
   mirror_components="main contrib non-free"
   export DISKINFO="CNTI Debian GNU/Linux $DEBVERSION $CODENAME $(date --utc +%Y%m%d)"
   export DISKTYPE=CD700

i tried with a much smaller package set, including the ones you
mentioned that failed before, and some that are only in
debian-multimedia.org, and it seemed to work.

also, i tried moving all the simple-cdd.conf stuff into
profiles/CNTI.conf, but this revealed another bug, as profiles/*.conf is
not read before the defaults are set. i think i can fix it by moving the
profiles/*.conf handling earlier, and shouldn't cause other problems. i
think it was handled so late to work around problems with debian-cd's
CONF.sh unsetting all sorts of values. 

patch committed in the bzr development branch:

 bzr get http://cdd.alioth.debian.org/bzr/simple-cdd/simple-cdd-devel/

live well,
