Greetings ! Any Ideas/steps of how to  porting gentoo on  ppc64le
architecture?

Is it that we should add 'ppc64le' keyword to portage ?


As some of you might know,  Ubuntu has been introduced in support of
ppc64le. <http://www.ubuntu.com/download/server/power8> ! It's just as it
 sounds  ppc64( 64bit only ) but little endian. I've been made basic chroot
environment  in my
Ubuntu 14.04 ppc64le manually, the packages was built  and you can see here
for detail:

And another way how to porting is: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Porting

Please let me know forward/steps to port gentoo on ppc64le.

Appreciated your thoughts, comments and efforts on it ~~~
