That is because kernel-image-2.4.10-386-udeb source builds it.

Since you are on powerpc you need to grab the source manually:
$ tar -xzf kernel-image-2.4.10-i386_2.4.10-1.tar.gz
$ grep udeb kernel-image-2.4/debian/rules
for i in $$(dh_listpackages | grep --
-udeb\$$); do \
That sort of udeb logic then needs ot be integrated into the standard
powerpc debian kernels. I'm cc'ing debin-boot because this isn't
obvious, but it is something that the other archs will need to do as
well so they can use debian-installer.
