Yes there are! I still have a heart for PPC. I do run MacPorts on 10.5 
and did a lot of hacking to keep some software running on it together 
with Ken who is the "master" of keeping MacPorts on old systems alive. I 
also run 10.5 avidly on Intel.

I also run Linux on PowerPC and fight to get software still supporting 
that lovable CPU.

So you are not forgotten. I do not use Tigerbrew and Gentoo Prefix - I 
concentrate only on MacPorts, it is a bit "manual" on older systems 
already that I have no intent to mix on one system.
