It's a bug of some description, it seems. The symlinks in dists/
are not consistent with the top level symlinks, and the packages file for
slink is the one from potato (so it boasts newer versions of packages
than it really has).

Try this:

deb http://www.rising.com.au/debian-non-US dists/slink/non-US/binary-$(ARCH)/

(A server of mine. By using dists/slink... instead of just 
frozen/binary-$(ARCH), you fix the first problem (wrong top level symlinks);
I regenerate the slink Packages.gz file after mirroring to fix the second).

nonus.debian.org has been refusing FTP connections all day though.
