The wip-ppc branch is currently targeting the ibook g4 on my desk. There
is ongoing work to target 64-bit PPC, both big and little endian. I
believe that one is closer to merging, there are just some last issues
about reproducibility of the bootstrap binaries. I'm pretty sure once
that is worked out it'll be ready to merge.

The bug report for the PPC64 issue is here:
