IT is not, we need to thinkg about this, and it will depend on wheter we go
the pure64 way, or the biarch way. In any case i would like to have a working
biarch compiler and stuff before i build kernels. Well, i already have a
biarch compiler, but it is a hacked one, and not fit to be put into debian.

No, i don't think so, a ppc64 kernel which cannot be built inside debian is
not really all that usefull, and there is still the question of the glibc.
Work is underway on this, but there is still a way to go.

Here would be the right place.
