Actually the arch/powerpc tree is working fine here, too.

You might have been unlucky and cloning / pulling  our  tree  at  the
wrong time; we had a stale DENX-v2.6.23.9 tag in there for some time;
unfortunately  the  fix  doesn't  propagate  as  your  side thinks it
already has a valid tag.

Please either "rm .git/refs/tags/DENX-v2.6.23.9" and pull  again,  or
throw  away  the  whole  tree  and  clone again. Sorry for the incon-
venience. And please let me know if this helps (it should).

Best regards,
