not really. miboot has no useful interface.

i believe this is powerpc-utils fault it unecessarily diverts
/etc/init.d/hwclock.sh which doesn't work right in debootstrap.  i
have filed a bug to get the diversion removed since we have a working
RTC on powerpc now (meaning we can just use hwclock like everywhere
else).
