Note that the bug is with util-linux, not powerpc-utils.  The clock.8 man
belongs to powerpc-utils, but was claimed by util-linux due to a typo.

Are you *sure* that this bug is still present in unstable?  What version
of util-linux is installed / being installed?  Version 2.11l-4 in unstable
has this bug (#116985) marked closed, and it fixed the problem for me.

'apt-get install util-linux/unstable' and see if that fixes your problem.

If you still have a conflict, file a bug against util-linux.
