This patch is the backport in 1.8.1 of git commit available in 1.9.0 futur release:
2ba74c3 Adding support of ppc64le architecture

Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2014-05-07 14:24:43 UTC
Patch looks good to me offhand, I'd say it's worth committing a FTBFS fix sooner rather than later (and I'd be happy to help sort out any problems, if there are any).

Comment 4 Jaromír Cápík 2014-05-07 14:44:24 UTC
Thanks Rex ... backport patch pushed and works.
