Could you be more concrete, like file or revision. There are some powerpc64
things in trunk, some from me, some from before, and depending on where,
there's only one of them, e.g. for inotify in filewatcher.c only __powerpc64__.
Similar, there may be places where only __ppc64__ is relevant. Without knowing
which place you refer to it is hard to tell whether it should be
Darwin-specific or not.

What I have been thinking about is defining something such as POWERPC64
somewhere in mini/ to allow doing
#ifdef POWERPC64
as a shortcut for
#if defined(__ppc64__) || defined(__powerpc64__)

As you may have noticed, the ppc JIT is currently broken (since the Linear IR
merge) unless you set MONO_COUNT=0.
And the Linux/ppc64 breakage I mentioned (exceptions-ppc.c) might be avoided by
turning off sigaltstack btw.
