Generally speaking, this patch looks fine to me.  Just curious, what
sort of machines does one use for 32-bit powerpc?

I want to build the bootstrap binaries, see if they're reproducible (in
particular GCC, which I suspect won't be), and verify the hashes.

It might take a few days to do that, but I'll update this thread once
I've done it.

Once you're reasonably sure the bootstrap binaries won't change, we
should consider uploading them to alpha.gnu.org.  Ludo did it for me for
powerpc64le-linux but I don't know who has access (I don't).

Any ideas for how we can get a machine for powerpc CI?  Maybe VMs, I
guess?  Can a POWER9 machine be a powerpc-linux machine...?

Old apple hardware based on powerpc G4 (powermacs, mini, imac, etc.),
maybe even G3.

A VM on power9 may be able to run BE ppc32.

There are a couple families of 32-bit powerpc machines out there with
(IIRC) macppc being the most prevalent for desktops.

Can it do it "directly" or does it need to be inside of a VM/chroot? I
never looked too much into it, never quite seemed like something that
I'd be able to take advantage of.
