I think that you can also just take the OpenJDK binaries, manipulate them  
(e.g. you were talking of stripping PPC code) and redistribute (together  
with the code - e.g. a script - that you used to do the manipulation). I  
mean, in function of what you need, you don't necessarily have to rebuild  
 from sources. The important thing is that the modified JRE is  
redistributed as a separate artifact under the GPL+CPE license.
