I think it would be better if you posted them to the list, as I can't
guarantee I'll have time to look at them.  Also, there are certainly
people there who know more about apt/dpkg than I do.

Well, if the logs aren't enormous or anything, just post them to the
list, and hopefully someone will be able to answer.  If it's not
PowerPC specific (and it probably isn't), posting to debian-user might
be a good idea too.
