Apologies on my part for this breakage although I do hope my pings
on this issue were interpreted as requests along the lines of "is
there further testing or things that I might be missing?" rather
than an explicit sign-off that they are perfect and simply need
merging. :)

Naturally, I was doing some testing with calls to "make build_hd-
media" and friends but clearly I was missing the build of
src:debian-installer itself — noted for any future change.

Indeed, thank you for this change. Alas, I believe it introduces a
reproducibility regression but I will follow-up there.

Best wishes,
