It seems as if this problem might not be powerpc-specific, but also
occur on s390:
| /usr/bin/make -C doc quagga.pdf
| make: Entering directory `/build/buildd/quagga-0.99.1/doc'
| convert fig-normal-processing.png "fig-normal-processing.eps"
| epstopdf --outfile="fig-normal-processing.pdf" fig-normal-processing.eps
| Unrecoverable error: typecheck in .getdeviceparams
| Operand stack:
| false --nostringval-- InputAttributes --nostringval-- 0 --nostringval-- PageSize --nostringval-- -2048 --nostringval-- --nostringval--
| make: *** [fig-normal-processing.pdf] Broken pipe
Exactly the same error as in the corresponding powerpc log.
