Hi everyone,

I'm trying to install Clang 7.1 on a PowerMac. Clang 7.1 is important
because it has this bug fix: The 39704 issue fixed
unaligned loads and stores for Altivec.

Clang 7.0 - which supports PPC - provides this error:

$ sudo port install clang-7.0
Error: clang-7.0 cannot be installed for the configured build_arch
'ppc' because it only supports the arch(s) 'i386 x86_64'.

Clang 7.1 results in an error:

$ sudo port install clang-7.1
Error: Port clang-7.1 not found

Would it be possible to update the configuration files to allow Clang
7.0 and 7.1 for PowerPC?
