The Sun PPC port is a royalty version, blackdown who have an older
sub-licensed ppc port asked if they could have access to the ppc hotspot
code but nothing so far has happened. Also Apple have a PPC hotspot jvm
port, again the code for that is under lock and key. Once you have the
jvm running you are home and dry. Last time I looked IBMs ppc jvm you
have to be registered to get it but they obviously more invested in ppc
than anyone else
