This is Bug#386675 (ITP: powerpc-ibm-utils -- Utilities for maintenance
of IBM PowerPC platforms) which blocks Bug#377097 (yaboot: ofpath
fails on IBM JS21 blades).

The powerpc-ibm-utils package will have the same Priority & Section
the legacy powerpc-utils package have, i.e. important & utils, and
Yaboot will depend on it to use ofpathname.

As I understand the importance of it, I will finish it this afternoon.
The sooner it enters NEW, the sooner we will benefit of it. ;)
