It looks like you modified "gnu: glibc: Fix ldd path on powerpc" and
"gnu: gcc-4.7: On powerpc64le, fix /lib64 references" to avoid changing
the package definitions on other architectures.  That might work out;
I'll try testing it on my hardware and report back.  Believe me, I'd be
happy to have powerpc64le-linux working on any branch.

However, the moment master and core-updates are integrated with one
another, glibc will be upgraded upgraded from 2.31 to 2.32, and it will
be necessary to upgrade GCC, also.  I don't think there's any way around
that.  If possible, I'd really prefer not to hide that big of a change
behind an "if powerpc64le-linux" statement, since I don't like the idea
of having to deal with unique failures on powerpc64le-linux that might
stem from using a different GCC version than the rest of Guix.  It is
good to be consistent with other architectures, when we can be.  Then we
can share the same problems and help fix them together.
