FWIW, the issue with sane-backends should be resolved now. I fixed net-snmp.

You need to wait for the src:linux-latest package to be updated:
The current on still depends on the older kernel. FWIW, you don't need linux-image-powerc,
it's just a meta-package. It just helps keeping the kernel up-to-date automatically
as it will always depend on the latest version of linux-image-$VERSION-powerpc
