Not recompiling everything saves a lot of time - and potential trouble. I've
no deep knowledge of ppc64 interna, and if you'd say that it has no major 
drawbacks I'm really fine with "just" trying to set up kernel, binutils and 
certain *lib* packages.

I found some information in 
about preparing an installation on p-series LPAR's.

Will look into this...
