There was an issue in cdebconf indeed, see report at:

Next issue: It seems we need libGL.so.1 so that something built against
gtk3 has a chance of being displayed (through libepoxy presumably, given
its purpose/description) → now getting ENOENT and a retry loop, which is
a different kind of black screen in d-i.

If that was at all possible, it would be nice if we could avoid pulling
mesa inside d-i, and maybe disable libepoxy in src:gtk+3.0 for its udeb.
libepoxy doesn't seem to be optional there though…

If that can't be done, sticking with gtk2 might be an option… :(
