It's GCC that doesn't know powerpc64-elf or powerpc64-eabi.

Does anyone have any pointers how to set up $PREFIX/powerpc-linux/ 
include etc. without access to a working ppc Linux system? GCC 4.4.5 -- 
target=powerpc64-linux build is failing during libdecnumber  
compilation for lack of string.h and stdio.h.
