Unfortunately, I didn't had time last weekend to take care of the ppc
builds. I hope to do so this weekend.

the mail I sent asking for reports about the i386 and amd64 images on
Intel based Apple machines was specificaly to get feedback about those,
because these machines have some weird behaviour and sometimes need
extra tweaks and quirks compared to real Intel machines.

powerpc should work more or less out of the box, however, since nobody
did build images since a couple of month, live-helper propably needs, as
you experienced, some updates here and there, but shouldn't be much and
easy to do.
as said, I hope to upload prebuild images next weekend. If there's
anything to adjust wrt/ powerpc, please let me know.
