Indeed, and I'm not interested in making this work on PPC.
It just seemed suspicious to me that the reason for not being able to
install a port on 'powerpc' was that a dependency is built "only" for
'i386' and 'ppc' and not also 'powerpc', with 'powerpc' and 'ppc'
being actually the same, as far as I know.
