I think this is due to the Packages.gz and Packages.xz file within /debian-ports/dists/sid/main/binary-ppc64 and /debian-ports/dists/sid/main/binary-powerpc are missing those files. For example, anna_1.71_ppc64.udeb is in /debian-ports/pool-ppc64/main/a/anna but there is no reference to this file in the Packages files in /debian-ports/dists/sid/main/binary-ppc64. It's also the reason why during installation of Debian on powerpc or ppc-64 the installer always complains about missing packages. They are actually there on the server but the installer won't find them as the Packages files are not complete.
