It is normal for bless to fail AFAIK. If you want, you can replace /usr/sbin/bless on the installer with something that returns 0, like this:

#! /bin/bash
# /usr/sbin/bless
# Make the installer succeed!
exit 0

It should not affect the installation in any way, all the files are copied over already and bless is run as a final step that sets the boot drive on a normal Mac. This is not necessary for Chameleon, not sure about Clover. I have a sample script replacement for bless that does some post-install type modifications of an installation, buried somewhere inside this: oz.freqlabs.com/osx86/mlusb.zip
