could you please review the following small patch which enables
building the hsdis library on Linux/PPC64 and AIX/PPC64:


I've tested that this change will not break the Linux/x86/x86_64 and
Solaris/sparc/sparcv9 platforms.

Notice that building the hs-dis library against a recent source
version of binutils may stop because of a dependency bug in the
binutils configure/make system with an error like:

WARNING: `makeinfo' is missing on your system.  You should only need it if
         you modified a `.texi' or `.texinfo' file, or any other file
         indirectly affecting the aspect of the manual.  The spurious
         call might also be the consequence of using a buggy `make' (AIX,
         DU, IRIX).  You might want to install the `Texinfo' package or
         the `GNU make' package.  Grab either from any GNU archive site.
make[4]: *** [bfd.info] Error 1

The easiest way to work around this problem is by doing a "touch
$BINUTILS/bfd/doc/bfd.info". I've documented this in the HotSpot Wiki


Thank you and best regards,
