Well, I'm by no means wedded to ppc64; I just want *some* BE
architecture in the primary set. Maybe a reasonable compromise would be
to include ppc but not ppc64? That would cover basic BE portability
issues, if not the occasional BE-and-64-bit bug. And it would halve the
present workload of the PPC builders, which might help the build time
Seconded on all points.
If sheer number of build machines is an issue, one could spin up a qemu
running ppc on a non-ppc box. One does reach a tipping point where a
modern machine + emulation winds up beating a native machine, as
progress marches on, too.
