It doesn't.

It's a f'ing mess.

I intended to do it, but I'm so busy with non-PPC stuff I never
finshed much of anything.

Right now, it won't even compile because all of the drivers need
updates, then we need the usual processor dependent porting stuff
done.  I have a pretty good idea what needs to be done, it's just
more work than the few weekends I thought it would take.

If someone wants to get the drivers to compile, I'll continue working
on the processor specific parts and maybe we can get it done soon.
