It's not an issue and support isn't being dropped. Those profiles were
old and deprecated. Use the tool "eselect profile --list" to display the
profiles that are compatible with your machine. As far as I know, the
current "latest" profile is default/linux/powerpc/ppc32/2008.0 for ppc32.

Hope that helps,
