Fancy trying the OpenJDK PPC port? Support is now available for using its HotSpot repository in place of the IcedTea one when building IcedTea 2.x:

$ hg clone
$ cd icedtea7
$ ./
$ ./configure --with-hotspot-build=ppc
$ make


Update: The PPC port has now been merged into the main IcedTea HotSpot repository, so the --with-hotspot-build option is no longer needed.
