The pmud-utils tools are, by definition, PowerMac only. But adding them
to powermac-utils would incur a dependency on pmud which most PowerMacs
won't really need. Please keep it stupid simple (you can use a suggests or
recommends type dependency but 'depends' comes with the potential for
conflicts of some sort so I'd warn against that.

whole distribution by means of dependency.

Wait, or get fnset added to powerpc-utils for the time being (package
updates are still fine AFAIK).
