Ok, I assumed that.

Yes, it's the bootloader packages on hppa too.

Sounds not very simple or clean.
How did you solved that on m68k then?
The only simple way I see is then to set up an own repository (cloned from debian-ports), add the packages there and then instruct the installer to load the installation packages from there. This is at least how I got it to work sucessfully once.
Alternatively one could play around with preseeding?
