I build these in OSDL's cross compile build farm (PLM) as a code check.
Our scripts are generalized to work for various architectures, so it is
disappointing that 'defconfig' no longer works for ppc the way it does 
in other achitectures.  Are there plans to make plain 'defconfig' work 
again, at least in the new 'powerpc' directory?  (The 'ppc64_defconfig' 
target looks good to me.:)

I will do this as a work-around.
