Because Red Hat shipped it in 5.3 but only i386 and x86_64  this is beacuse 
they are the only RHEL arches with a native jit  the only other arches with it 
are sparcv9 and sparc64.  the support for ppc/s390/s390x/arm/ia64 etc is using 
zero which is not native and is slower.  but we could ship ppc java in EPEL,  
we removed java-1.6.0-openjdk after it was shipped in RHEL. AFAIK Red Hat 
doesnt ship the plugin  which we could ship also.  it would take careful 
packaging to do.  but as far as java goes we could just ExclusiveArch ppc it 
and build it for our needs.
