Notice that once we are going multi-arch (probably not for etch though), the
64bit architecture will be called powerpc64, and not ppc64. The ppc64 effort
is a different thing, a one-man effort by Andreas Jochens mostly, who rebuilt
everything in a pure-64 way, and has been sending out bug reports asking for
ppc64 support since a long time now.
