Comment (by dougmencken@…):

 > Yes, Zero VM can be used to produce a PPC port, but there is no upstream
 support for it. I provided some PPC binaries based on zero some time ago;
 getting this working again would be a sizable effort.

 So you don't want to work on it and marked this issue as "won't fix" :(

 > You're free to, but you're unlikely to find any significant interest
 unless you're ready to do the porting work, and even then, you'll have
 more luck with the BSD porting team than the Apple team, as the Mac OS X
 port (which is based on the BSD port) relies on features added in later OS
 X releases than are available for PPC.

 As I understand, making something more portable does mean making it more
 portable. Regardless any marketing, Apple CPU changing etc. I contacted
 OpenJDK team.

 > JamVM is not a compliant Java(TM) implementation, isn't based on
 OpenJDK, and you'll run into issues trying to run most complex Java

 JamVM from MacPorts is stuck with failing GNU Classpath, my ticket:
