You *must* do either one of the following:

  * Build the sarge version of debian-installer against the sarge
    archive. For the moment, this involves setting 'SUITE ?= sarge' in
    build/config/common; if there is ever another upload of
    debian-installer to sarge, we'll fix this.

  * Build the SVN trunk of debian-installer (or the version in unstable)
    against the unstable archive.

You *cannot* build the sarge version of debian-installer against the
unstable archive; it sounds as if that's what you're trying to do.
