FS#178 - New installer overwrites pacman mirrors

I tried to install archlinux32 using the archinstall installer, which is shipped with the installation medium.
Installation is working fine until pacstrap, where it will crash because all mirrors will return 404. I checked
my connection and it is working and dns also works. When I viewed the /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist file, I saw that the script
wrote the default archlinux mirrors for the region specified in the installer to the file and the don’t contain the 32bit packages.

Yes, there were several references to archlinux.org in the package. I commited a simple fix replacing all "/archlinux.org/" by "/archlinux32.org/". This will obviously only land on the next iso. If you want to give it a shot, you can do a `pacman -Sy archinstall` on the iso before running archinstall itself.

However, I guess, there will be still some issues, so I'll keep this bug open until someone confirms, that there are no similar things happening anymore :-D

hmm, apparently archinstall fails to build due to some unrelated python problem, currently - so the new version could take some time.

Ok I will try it again when the next version is released :)
