I'm working on a native PowerPC port of JDK8.   I've been successful in building a Zero JVM.

I originally posted information on this effort to the AIX-PPC list, however, it was recommended to post to the BSD list(s) as well. See the attached for background.

To date, using the Linux PPC code set, I've been able to build a partially working native PPC64 JVM.  I developed initial patches that can be used to build using the latest FreeBSD port.

I can make this work available to anyone interested in helping in this effort.
