Do you mean setting "-mno-altivec" as a generic compiler flag for
Yes, that's what i mean. "-mno-altivec" and maybe some other
"-mno-something" flags, so it could run on any PPC64 cpu, even if it
does not have altivec/vmx, or if it does not have the optional opcodes
of the PPC64 standard (like fsqrt).
The packages currently available from the ports repo do not run on every
PPC64 cpu. Even packages recompiled with the "-mno-altivec" flag contain
binaries with optional opcodes.
