What happens here is that the themes and data are architecture all, so are the
one built for i386, who has enlightenment 0.16.3-6. While the architecture
powerpc package enlightnement, was not recompiled.

Just get the source package and recompile it. (apt-get source should do the
work for you).

Hope this situation will get cleaned after the potato release, with all their
package pool plan and other such.
