But it’s very unlikely that busybox would behave differently on powerpc and ppc64.

Maybe partman-zfs is in the exclude-udeb list for powerpc and not ppc64 (check the debian-cd git).

Either way, I can exclude partman-zfs for the next build then it won’t bother us.

It’s good we tested that. I’ll build another grub-installer udeb with that change tomorrow. I’m too tired now.
