Please consider the following trivial patch to allow ppc64le to build perl properly:

Comment 1 Petr Pisar 2014-01-14 12:10:13 UTC
There is a discussion whether Fedora's RPM supports "ppc64le" as an architecture identifier.

Comment 2 Petr Pisar 2014-01-14 12:34:11 UTC
So RPM knows ppc64le.

There is a %{power64} macro which should expand to all 64-bit PowerPC architecture RPM identifiers. I will use that to replace plain ppc64.

Once the macro get knowledge about ppc64le it will satisfy your needs.

Comment 3 Petr Pisar 2014-01-14 13:29:48 UTC
I've modified the perl.spec.

Now rpm has to change "power64" macro. See bug #1052930.
