It was a nominal installation until it came time to write a boot loader.  It presented me with a top-level installer menu, with "Install GRUB boot loader" hilighted.

Since GRUB is for x86, not PowerPC, this was odd.  I hit <enter> and it immediately returned to the same menu with "GRUB" still hilighted, apparently having done 
nothing useful.

I then skipped the "GRUB" menu item and told it to install YABOOT (the next item on the menu), and all proceeded as expected from there.

 grub-installer - Install GRUB on a hard disk (udeb)
Closes: 463765
 grub-installer (1.28) unstable; urgency=low
   [ Colin Watson ]
   * Fix some hardcoding of /target.
   [ Robert Millan ]
   * Replace update-grub with update_grub in a pair of places.
   * Stop aborting on reiserfs/gpt (supported now).
   * Change menu item from 7300 to 7400 so that for PowerPC grub is offered
     after the yaboot bootloader; for x86 it will still be the default as
     lilo and elilo already have higher numbers. Closes: #463765.
   * Set grub-installer as uninstallable for PowerPC subarchitectures other
     than chrp_pegasos.
