Bug#263743: dpkg: Please use the package architecture name 'ppc64' as specified by the LSB 2.0

retitle 263743 dpkg: Please support the ppc64 architecture

The LSB 2.0 uses 'ppc64' as the name of the architecture. The LSB 2.0 says:

"Package Architecture Considerations

 All packages must specify an architecture of ppc64. [...]"

Of course Debian could choose a different name and provide a LSB 
compatibility layer which handles the name conversion. However,
I do not see any reason why we should deviate from the name which
the LSB chooses for the package architecture in this case. This is
in contrast to the amd64 case, where we unfortunately had problems with
the special character '_' in the LSB package architecture name x86_64.
