I had this problem doing a "net boot" (rarpd+tftpboot) install using the
slink tftpboot image.  I got past the initial part of the install, but had
to switch to "mounted" method at some point (just before or just after the
base install).  Once the build was done, I upgraded apt and libstdc++2.10
to potato and everything was fine when I switched back to apt.  This was
on a sun4c.  On the sun4m's I've installed, I had no problems.
