The hwclock works on powerpc, but not on all types. 

 isis:~# hwclock
 Tue Aug  3 11:16:22 1999  -0.275828 seconds

This is with my chrp system. 

Other powerpc types use the 'adb' clock, the clock binary is in the
powerpc-utils package (/sbin/clock). 

I think, your powerpc.debian.org account is still valid, bug me if not.
