Do you mean setting "-mno-altivec" as a generic compiler flag for ppc64?

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.

Cheers
