Ah yes. So your message together with this page:
looks to me like ppc64 isn't supported yet in
stable/testing/unstable. Please correct me someone if I'm wrong ..
Most packages for ppc64 seem to be ready for testing or unstable,
An excerpt from this READ_ME from the page above:
6. Status of the PPC64 Port
The ppc64 archive on alioth has about 95% of the source packages
from Debian 'unstable' compiled.
Most of the missing packages fail to build because of serious bugs
which are not ppc64 specific.
