Well, i have followed the instructions (would have been faster if Alistairs
packages would have been uploaded somewhere else, but well ...), and it then
fails with :
$ fakeroot make build_powerpc_gtk-miniiso
# Getting temporary GTK tarballs...
mkdir -p ./tmp/powerpc_gtk-miniiso/gtk-tb
wget ""http://merci/debian/d-i_gtkfrontend/"" -O ./tmp/powerpc_gtk-miniiso/gtk-index

And i think something is seriously wrong here, what are those tarballs, and
why is it trying to wget them from some random place ?
