    I think you could just change line 5 in the top-level Makefile from

    ARCH := $(shell uname -m | sed -e s/i.86/i386/ -e s/sun4u/sparc64/)


    ARCH := $(shell uname -m | sed -e s/i.86/i386/ -e s/i386/ppc/)

    but I haven't tried it. IMO it would be better if the platform could be
    set in the configuration programs, with the uname test used to establish a
    default when there is no .config file.
