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.
