I was answering a precise question concerning gcc: "what linux distros
for that architecture provide".

Concerning this question, the bit of answer I can provide is:
Debian has clang 3.5 for powerpc (plus some 3.6 pre-releases from svn,
apparently). I can't say for sure whether it is reliable though, as I am
not sure whether the full-archive rebuilds with clang are also done on
powerpc or only one of the x86 architectures.

Kind regards, Thibaut.
