Xfree86 support for Voodoo 3 acceleration

After looking at www.xfree86.org and the source for Xfree-3.3.4,
it seems that support for the Voodoo 3 card's 2-d acceleration
is already in Xfree86!  But, (and I'm just guessing here, I do a lot
of programming but none of it is system or GUI programming) 
this support appears to run only on x86 systems currently.  There doesn't
appear to be any asm code or anything, though, so shouldn't it be 
possible to port this to the linuxppc side of things?
