Building Binary on PPC with Debian Wheezy

I’ve decided to try building a binary bundle on a PPC (imac g5), running Debian Wheezy (latest version as of 5/2015).

I thought that I would ask though, before I try this seemingly arduous task, if anyone has already done this?

If so, would you have any recommendations?

I’ve read the warnings and recommendations on this site, but it would be the first time to do anything of this scale.


Not sure what the Linux/PPC support status is for Ardour to be honest. It may require some work to get compiling, beyond the ‘typical’ amount of work required to set up the build environment.
