Wheee. The majority of Fedora Extras packages are now built for Fedora/PPC.

Most of it built without trouble, the significant exception being CVSup. But now we have the Modula-3 compiler running on PPC and building binaries which run with glibc-2.3.4, so that's built too. Very reminiscent of my undergraduate days, trying to bootstrap M3 for the LINUXLIBC6 target.

If we can just fix the remaining installer problems, hopefully Fedora Core 4 can have an official PPC release. FC3 and FC2 both ran well on 32-bit and 64-bit hardware once you managed to get them installed, but it'll be nice to get it properly supported.
