Though the kernel embeds the dtc source in it now, and a stand-alone
dtc is not required for kernel builds.

PowerPC is supported in the upstream GNU glibc and gcc projects.  There
is no separate repository for those.  The PowerPC maintainers for those
projects can be found on the website for glibc (it's Steven Munroe), or
in the MAINTAINERS file in gcc.  PowerPC is called 'rs6000' in gcc for
historical reasons.
