After the call to 
	# initialize the correct platform
	$::_platform_ = "i386-linux";
	$vars{'this_platform'} = $::_platform_;
that should make it possible to continue with installation, and it will
always use i386-linux. No need ofr /usr/bin/lzmadec in this case.

Best wishes

CORFE (n.)
An object which is almost totally indistinguishable from a newspaper,
the one crucial difference being tat it belongs to somebody else and
is unaccountably much more interesting that your own - which may
otherwise appear to be in all respects identical. Though it is a rule
of life that a train or other public place may contain any number of
corfes but only one newspaper, it is quite possible to transform your
own perfectly ordinary newspaper into a corfe by the simple expedient
of letting somebody else read it.
