PPC is scheduled to become a Secondary arch when we actually have a
successful Secondary Arch system.  We don't have that right now, so we
can't move PPC into that slot.  ia64 is getting very close to doing
their first release, with a somewhat by hand Secondary Arch effort,
paving the way (along with sparc) for a more automated system that would
finally allow us to move PPC over.
