If you're ever looking for prebuilt kernels for powerpc check out

Many prebuilt (vanilla, some custom kernels).  We're always willing  
to take on more configs as well (like ubuntu builds).  if you want to  
add some get in touch with me offlist and we can get you setup.

Makes for good regression testing as well as we keep an archive of  
the kernels built.
