Re: package update lag on powerpc

Groff was a messup with the build daemon.  It's been fixed.  I don't
know what the deal with slocate was, I'm trying to figure it out from
the logs.

It's not _ALL_ warnings, it's a few that indicate powerpc-specific
problems, like the character signedness (comparison always false) mess.
