This is the culprit, you can go into
/usr/share/kernel-package/kernel/arch/ppc.mk or ppc64.mk and edit it so it
says ARCH=powerpc. I have submitted a patch to #340629, but it is tentative
and untested, would be nice if you could help out iron it out, CCing the bug

Manoj, i would like to know how the .mk snipplets are chosen, i think the best
solution for this would be to have make-kpkg check the version being built,
and for <2.6.15, chose ppc.mk or ppc64.mk depending on if the arch exported by
the kernel is ppc or ppc64, and for kernels bigger than 2.6.15 (or rc
versions) chose the powerpc.mk snipplet instead, and then normally the patch i
provide should be ok. Not sure, you are the master of this, and i failed to
understand how the snipplet are chosen, but then i didn't look long.
