No: base-installer is a separate source package and thus has its own build
deps. I just forgot to include a step to install those (but luckily DDs
are smart enough to figure such minor omissions out by themselves ;-)

Correct. The installer still uses 2.6.30 and the bug is related to the
kernel version that's running when silo is installed. It'll get solved
when we switch to 2.6.32, which should happen soon after the (delayed) D-I
alpha1 release gets out.
