  Done.  There is now an example yaboot.conf in ppc's 'Making the LFS 
System Bootable'.  Probably buggy, make sure you have a rescue CD before 
trying it :-(

  For the moment, I've linked to debian's current powerpc-utils patch, 
which is bigger than the original package.  If I get time next week 
I'll look at stripping it down, removing the bogus warning about the 
headers, and perhaps transcribing the sgml manpage for nvsetenv.  Of 
course, if we ever start to support OldWorld, probably a lot more of the 
package will be relevant.

  I was thinking about "if you are going to boot", but it seems to me 
that you need to be on the mac to partition it (for the bootstrap) and 
to run ybin - possibly, any host can create a blessed CD to boot from, 
but we already have the LiveCD.  No doubt anybody building from OSX will 
need to boot, so I'll leave that issue for the people it affects.
