modutils is not buildable on potato anymore, it depends on new
dpkg-dev and other such things.  i would suggest building the bunk
versions rather then the sid versions.  

deb-src http://people.debian.org/~bunk/debian potato main

there are only i386 binaries, but you can get the source and build
them for powerpc like walters suggests.
