Looks fine to me.
As for AIX: the calling convention is similar (or the same) as on
MacOSX, so you may want to grep for __APPLE__ in the ppc sources and
check for AIX, too, except in the ucontext code which I assume is
different (or, better, in mini-ppc.h, add a call conv specific define
for Darwin and AIX and change the call conv specific places to use
that instead of __APPLE__).
The other issue you may run into with the port is related to function
descriptors: there may be a few places where we return a pointer to the
code instead of a pointer to a function descriptor for the function
