It seems as if this problem might not be powerpc-specific, but also
occur on s390:

,---- http://buildd.debian.org/fetch.php?&pkg=quagga&ver=0.99.1-6&arch=s390&stamp=1127770198&file=log&as=raw
| /usr/bin/make -C doc quagga.pdf

| epstopdf --outfile="fig-normal-processing.pdf" fig-normal-processing.eps
| Unrecoverable error: typecheck in .getdeviceparams

| make[1]: *** [fig-normal-processing.pdf] Broken pipe

Exactly the same error as in the corresponding powerpc log.
