It should work on the standard 32-bit PowerPC baseline which includes
AltiVec. Other systems such as PowerPC E500 had their own Debian port
anyway (powerpcspe).

NodeJS will definitely need some work on 32-bit PowerPC to get it working,
but enabling the build in the first place should be the first step.

FWIW, there is also a bootstrapping problem with NodeJS as it requires
node-arcon for building which in turn depends on nodejs itself.

So, we'll need to add an sbuild profile which allows to build the nodejs
package without to build the initial binary package for a bootstrap.

I'll file a separate bug for that.
