The projects that I'm interested in are related to code generation so the hardware details are important to me. I wouldn't need graphics but I'd need networking and enough memory and disk space to do builds. For example, the machine would need to be capable of building something like GCC.

64 bit CPU is fine running 32 bit userspace.  I have run IBM power6
and power7 machines with Debian powerpc, with 64bit kernel and 32 bit
userspace.  Works great.  Used it as a build machine for 32 bit powerpc

A 32bit chroot of debian on a 64bit powerpc works fine.

linux32 works on powerpc too to make it look like a smaller cpu.
