the 64 bit machines apparently need yaboot compiled with
CONFIG_PPC64BRIDGE = y

in yaboot's makefile, this only affects crt0.S

i really really do not want to deal with 2 yaboot binaries if it can
be avoided though.  (and i think ive heard that the hack in question
may not be necessary anyway).  

ybin already supports installing and configuring for the IBM CHRP
setup (dd to bootstrap partition).  so all we need to do in dbootstrap
is check for that arch and check for a 0x41 partition instead of
Apple_Bootstrap, those will also have the requirement that /boot be
the same disk as / and bootstrap unlike newworld powermac.
