In the powerpc archives, available here:
you might want to search for exactly these topics between April 8
through 15 this year, where compile questions were discussed in
great detail, partly ad nauseam:
Compile errors Patching 126.96.36.199 to 2.6.12-rc2
Building packages and compiler flags
Recompile a driver, without recompiling the whole kernel
I don't know whether there are specific compiler flags necessary for
ppc64, but I'd think they're not, simply because gcc might probably
realise the system (ppc64) automatically anyway ... Am I right?
