In spite of not knowing anything about the bad links problem, I'll try answer.

It seems to me as if the symbolic links points a little wrong.
Do "ls -l /cdrom/buzz-updates/binary-i386/*/sudo*" and see if you get any 
output. Suppose you see 
"/cdrom/buzz-updates/binary-i386/admin/sudo_1.4.4-2.deb", then do
"ln -sf /cdrom/buzz-updates/binary-i386/admin/sudo_1.4.4-2.deb \
/tmp/Debian-1.1.6/stable/binary-i386/admin/sudo_1.4.4-2.deb" and then 
"rm /tmp/Debian-1.1.6/stable/binary-i386/admin/sudo_1.4.4-2.deb".

Repeat for the second symbolic link.
