Hi Christian,

you can have a look at our OpenJDK PowerPC Port for Linux and
AIX<>(it builds
and runs on Linux/PPC64 <>

Porting it to 32-bit PPC would be possible although I expect it to be quite
an effort (i.e. assembler hacking) and we currently don't have any plans to
do it (our focus will be Java 8 and the integration into the main branch).
