As a powerpc buildd admin but not a porter, I'd be happy to do so.
- It's only useful to talk to a porter if the bug clearly is a porting
issue, rather than a bug in the package. This isn't always easy to
make out from the build log.
- I have no clue who the powerpc porters are, if there are any.
I can mail to the debian-powerpc mailinglist of course, but that seems
to be mostly a powerpc user support list these days.

works because there's a guard with a large gun making sure no one is
trying to fool the system.
