    OK, so the derivation right side should change a little (I'll take a patch).

    The actual point is one of design philosophy. Instead of presenting the
    ser with unnecessarily platform-specific questions, we should be asking
    platform-independent (wherever this is possible) questions about the
    *capabilities* he/she wants and mixing that wuith information about the
    platform.

    I'll go further than that. PP_RTC should probably never have existed
    as a user-visible symbol and question in the first place, as it
    duplicates what PPC is asking. The derivation should actually take
    place somewhere in the C code of the PPC port tree.
