well, if you use the old 2009.8 images which has the old aif, it will
indeed give problems when you install the latest packages (although
technically it will mount /mnt/etc, but before it mounts /mnt so it
gets inaccessible), and this problem exists more then since two weeks.

*if* this is the problem you're having,
possible solutions:
1) run LC_COLLATE=c /arch/setup
2) get a new iso from http://build.archlinux.org/isos/
