Ok, Yaboot doesn't build. It has a hard build-dependency on efslibs1.41-dev
which we don't have anymore. It doesn't build against ef2fslibs-dev.

I think Frank should re-submit his patch set to add PPC Mac support to the
grub-installer package with the patch

	"[PATCH 4/5] Create and configure the missing CHRP boot script."

modified to include the "ofpath" script taken from the yaboot package directly
into the grub-installer package.
