This is not a valid bug report because the package itself is fine. The
problem is that b43-fwcutter is not available in Debian Ports because
we do not yet fully support the contrib and non-free sections of the
package repositories. We have the all packages, but not the arch-specific

However, I can build the b43-fwcutter package manually and upload it for
the powerpc and ppc64 architectures in the unreleased repository which
will fix this issue until contrib and non-free become fully available.
