Note that..

1) I looked only at official kernel source code
2) I looked only at a few releases, not every patchset.
3) I looked only at the resulting .config file after preparing it 
with make menuconfig.

>Linux g5 2.6.10-gentoo-r6-g5 #6 SMP Wed Jan 26 23:05:05 CET 2005 ppc
>PPC970, altivec supported PowerMac7,2 GNU/Linux

 From what I can tell, the .config file is built up from different 
files. I just looked at gentoo-dev-sources for this version and it 
is, in fact, present for ppc64 in

That suggests the mechanism that generates the .config files is not 
working right under certain circumstances related to the 64bit G5.
