I'm a little worried about where to go with ppc64 at the moment. There isn't great support in Debian and Ubuntu for a pure 64-bit user land, and it doesn't appear that there is a 64-bit version of all of xbmc's dependent libraries in the powerpc arch. I don't think I'm ready to think about other distros.
Multiarch seems to be the future for Debian and Ubuntu. So, I think we'll see mixed 32/64 userland support improving over time for power, and I don't think there's much effort going into pure 64-bit for power.
Since, xbmc builds and runs okay on a ppc64 machine with a ppc64 kernel and a 32-bit userland. I'm starting to think we should just focus on 32-bit powerpc and forget about ppc64 until distro support improves.
Comments? Does anyone actually run a pure ppc64 distro that wants xbmc support?
