Preliminary PPC Release



For anyone interested:

Integration 01 version 12.4 of ttylinux for Macintosh is available.
http://www.ttylinux.net/news.html
http://www.ttylinux.net/downloadPPC.html

This release is the first step in merging ptylinux into ttylinux.
ttylinux has architecture variants, and now I've formalized its four
size variants: mu (smallest), em (small), ut (medium) and ws (big).
What was ptylinux now is ws ttylinux, and that is what this prerelease
is.

This prerelease is notable:
=> it is big, running in a 64 MB RAM disk
=> it has the ALSA system and frame buffers from ptylinux
=> built from a re-engineered cross-tool builder, now called
xbuildtool
=> built with a reorganized ttylinux build system (no pkg-bld
directory)
=> has binutils-2.20, make-3.82, gcc-4.4.4
=> used itself to make its own vim-7.3 package
