You probably don't need an initrd at all, just build all the drivers
you need for your root filesystem into the kernel.  If you still want
to use an initrd, put the attached file into debian/post-install and
run make-kpkg with --subarch=pmac, this should package the vmlinux
file and the glue for turning it into vmlinuz into your custom kernel
