Steve Langasek starting working through LP: #1562480 [1] and removing
powerpc binaries.
He found a false positive; 'laby' and a some packages not listed on
that bug that got their powerpc binaries copied from xenial; e.g.
'ztex-bmp' and 'winff'.  I'll add the missing packages to that bug.

BTW, I found that lazarus 1.6+dfsg-4 is FTBFS on amd64, arm64 and i386
in Ubuntu [2].
I tried rebuilding now, but they failed again.  1.6+dfsg-3 had built previously.
Tail of the build log:

Using buildid for compat level >= 9
dpkg-gencontrol: warning: Built-Using field of package
lazarus-ide-1.6: unknown substitution variable ${bu:version}
dpkg-gencontrol: warning: can't parse dependency fpc (= )
dpkg-gencontrol: error: error occurred while parsing Built-Using field: fpc (= )
Error: parsed ddeb section or priority is empty
debian/rules:401: recipe for target 'binary-arch' failed
