For now, yes.  Set ARCH=ppc when you compile the kernel.

I believe there are some hacks in the makefiles to pull common asm files
from include/asm-powerpc when needed.  Basically, you should be able to
just do:

#include <asm/foo.h>

and it should work.  If you're adding new .h files, I suppose asm-ppc is
the place to add them for now.  That's just my opinion though :)
