It seems that none of the packages produced target the arm64 or ppc64el architectures which Ubuntu supports. There is a configuration for ppc64 packages, but I don't believe Ubuntu supports that particular architecture definition (favouring ppc64el)?

Those are non-multilib arches.... I think you want to use
g++-aarch64-linux-gnu and g++-powerpc64le-linux-gnu without any
switches (ie. without -m64 or anything like that), which is available
on "developy" amd64/i386/ppc64le architectures. Would that be enough
for your use cases?
