e5500 is also used by NXP in their T1040 QorIQ network appliances I
recompiled and ported most of Debian 8 packages to these boxes about
three to four years ago. It went pretty smoth even if in some cases i
had to patch some upstream source code because of  inline ASM code or
hardcoded compiler options in Makefiles. Hope fully it was very few
software we were not using in network use case.

Initial build hase been done using 5 dual cpu Powermac G5.   Once it
hase been proven working, and build chain boot strapped i recompiled a
few thousands of packages using a Power 8 installed with the packages
built on Macs

So in some cases like mine it can be not about embeded boards or Amiga
clones :) and i am still an Amiga lover and owner 30 years after :P

Any ways i'll be happy to share and talk about this any days.
