At the moment, packages.debian.org quotes versions for i386 only. Here's
some more accurate information:
[cjwatson@auric ~]$ madison lyx
lyx | 1.1.4-3 | stable | powerpc
lyx | 1.1.4-3 | testing | powerpc
lyx | 1.1.4-3 | unstable | powerpc
lyx | 1.1.4-7 | stable | source, alpha, i386, m68k
lyx | 1.1.4-7 | testing | m68k
lyx | 1.1.4-7 | unstable | m68k
lyx | 1.1.5fix2-1 | testing | source, alpha, i386
lyx | 1.1.5fix2-1 | unstable | alpha
lyx | 1.1.6fix3-1 | unstable | source, i386
So lyx is indeed out of date on powerpc, probably because it's in the
contrib section and the autobuilders don't always keep religiously up to
date with that.
