Can't you just use the prebuilt kernels from :


? You will need to recompile the sid yaird and maybe initrd-tools, but they
work fine on sarge (running them on a sarge install on my tibook). You would
need the -powerpc64 flavour obviously.

You can naturally do it yourself by building either a ppc32->ppc64 cross
compiler, or inside a etch/sid chroot, or something. I personally use a sid
chroot (man debootstrap for details).
