more specific: we'll have "ppc-sources" (maybe ppc-sources-xfs, I don't know) 
and a linux-headers with ARCH switching, so that basically all archs share 
the same linux-header ebuild but have different sources.

This will probably be "visible" in ppc portage by the end of the week

Best regards,

Pieter
