I added an ARCH switch so that on ppc it compiles in a relatively 
standard way (but with the gentoo patches).  If you look at the ebuild 
you'll see that the original messes with the host.def file in a rather 
hackish way, and the settings put in there obviously weren't agreeing 
with us.  I tried substituting various ppc-specific options in the file, 
but nothing seemed to work; so I just let the autodetection do its stuff.

I'm not sure if it will pick up all our make optimisations this way, but 
I don't see any noticeable performance difference here, and it's nice to 
be scrolling up again ;-)  If anyone knows how to make the host.def file 
work on ppc, I'd be interested to hear.
