Ahh, excellent, thanks. Still trying to wrap my head around it all.
I think there are a few things that we should look at adjusting in there now
that I look at things though. There are definately more apps that can be
masked (which just plain don't run on ppc) like vmware-workstation stuffs,
wine, etc. Have actually had a couple users in #gentoo-ppc ask why they
couldn't get vmware working after they emerged it on their ppc's ;)
If we look harder I imagine there are more apps that are x86 only as well.
