I'm taking some time to test out powerpc64le-linux on core-updates.  At
the very least, I'd like to be able to "guix pull" on core-updates and
use the pulled guix to build some basic stuff.  Last time I tested this
was when we were using gcc-8, so I expect some things are different now.

I would also like to go go back and remove some of the conditionals that
we added in order to support powerpc64le-linux on master.  Then we could
delete the wip-ppc64le branch for good.
