This is the cause of everything else. I *think* I've fixed it in
localechooser 2.38 (actually, just by the fact of reuploading it, but I
also added a check so that it should fail to build rather than building
a broken version). We should find out in a day or two.
For d-i developers without powerpc systems, this may be useful (you'll
need qemu-system and openbios-ppc installed):
qemu-system-ppc -monitor stdio -cpu G4 -M mac99 -bios /usr/share/openbios/openbios-ppc -cdrom debian-testing-powerpc-businesscard.iso -boot order=d
