There is no boot strap partition on the first drive and it is all
taken up by Mac OS X, so that is not an option. The installer cannot
re-install Mac OS X, and AFAIK there is no support for resizing of
hfsplus just yet.

Agreed. But the question is *HOW*.
We still don't know what failed in your case, so (at least for me) its
hard to tell how to not assume that there is a single drive. If you
could isolate what broke and report it I suspect the d-i team would be
happy to make improvements.

You're welcome ;-) You've discovered what made me switch to Debian a
few years ago.
