Is it possible to build a ppc cross-compiler that does both PPC64 and 
PPC32? I only ask because disk space is a little tight on my workstation.

My main concern was that in order to fix up the memory properties, I had 
to truncate the memory available properties to 32-bit (4GB). However 
since Segher points out that you won't be able to allocate memory past 
4GB until you finally bump the cell size, I don't see that this is a 
reason not to commit.
