I have this problem all the time on ppc, alpha, sparc and arm (yes, I'm running
potato on all of these, and may soon bring up my old Amiga on Debian m68k! :-).
This is one of those times when one throws up the hands and says, "that's why
they call it *unstable*".
If this were earlier in the release cycle, I'd say next time it's built for ppc,
get it and then hold the _all packages. But it's so late, the next time may be
the last time- unless this ppc build bug is real.
