This (slightly outdated) guide  explains how it's done. Basically, you
have to create a local mirror first as debian-cd cannot download any packages
remotely when building a CD.
You should also manually build the debian-installer package from git 
manually to make sure the kernel ABI version is correct . The ABI version
in debian-installer must always match the one from src:linux . The ABI
version is *not* the same as the package version which indicates the upstream
Also, you will need to fix the ofpathname tool if you want to be able to
install on a PowerMac  and then merge the changes in .
