Again: this is a matter of trying to bring Extras up to a portability
standard we have long held Core to.  I have little respect for any
Extras-package maintainer who won't at least try to meet the challenge.
If you're stuck because you depend on some other package that doesn't
build on ppc64, then of course it's not your fault --- but if *you*
are the roadblock, it's time to pull the socks up.
