powerpc-utils wants to update a conffile. The prompt fails because stdin
is /dev/null. You then get repeat 20 failures of dpkg because
powerpc-utils never configures. This should be fixed in
debootstrap-0.1.10. I usually hand-patch the woody script 
(/usr/lib/debootstrap/scripts/woody if memory serves) to include
--force-confold before I install base (while I wait for
debootstrap-0.1.10 to show up ;-).
