PowerPC pcmcia-modules name seems wrong

I was trying to build boot-floppies on powerpc, and it kept stopping
after failing to download pcmcia-modules. 

I turned debug on, and finally figured out there is a mismatch between
the debootstrap-...Packages file and kernel.sh. In the packages file,
the package is named pcmcia-modules-2.4.18, but in kernel.sh it calls
for pcmcia-modules-{$kernel_version}{$subarch-suffix} which translates
to pcmcia-modules-2.4.18-newpmac.

I don't know if this is a bug in kernel.sh (probably not) or a bug 
in the Packages file. I tried changing the Packages file first, but 
it caught me doing that when the md5 didn't match and downloaded a 
new one. So to get around the problem I removed $subarch-suffix from 
kernel.sh on my local copy.
