yesterday, I built lzma and the normal texlive binaries on linux-ppc;
AFAICS, there were no problems. I will have to test the pdftex-1.40.8
build, though (has anyone actually tested this binary on ppc-darwin?
There was a bug in 1.40.7 which prevented inclusion of pdf images).
Since my system is 64-bit linux with 32-bit userland, I had to compile
xindy inside a linux32 subshell; this appears to have worked too. I'm
not a programmer at all, but this looked good to me:
cd /home/tas/texlive/source/inst/bin/powerpc-unknown-linux-gnu &&
strip * >/dev/null 2>&1 || true
./Build: 279 binaries in /home/tas/texlive/source/inst/bin.
