Cell - linux compatibility question

Hello folks..

We are about to order a 1U dual cell server from Mercury Computer, see:


They are offering a linux (yellow dog) from terra-soft on this  
platform based on the 2.6.14-1 kernel.  I understand that your kernel  
(I assume that it is fedora core 5) is built for the blade board that  
you show on your website.

Do you know anyone who has experience with porting the Cell GNU  
toolchain to this platform?

Any predictions on the relative difficulty?

Thanks in advance for any input you may be able to provide.
