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 http://icedtea.classpath.org/hg/icedtea7/ $ cd icedtea7 $ ./autogen.sh $ ./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.
