The ppc arch of the kernel tree was not well maintained in the Red Hat
kernel source for the release that used the 2.4 kernel (Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 3).
I would be surprised if it built, and I'm fairly certain it would not

That being said, Red Hat makes a business in developing its products for
other platforms and might consider the work on a contract basis.
