Yeah, I fully agree. POWER7 should be fine.

You can just install a regular Debian Jessie with powerpc. As long as
the kernel is "ppc64", e.g. 64-bit-capable, I can easily set up ppc64

Provided that Hiroyuki is ok with that, I would go ahead, set up the
ppc64 buildds and ask Aurelien to add them to the wanna-build

Only thing I would ask you is to create a working mail configuration
on the VM so that the buildd instances can send and receive mail
on the buildd.

Will send you a second mail in a minute.
