Dear Anton,

The openfoam package in Ubuntu had started to fail to build on ppc64el with
an OOM error.  Digging into this, I found that amd64 and arm64 already had
special handling in debian/rules, to build with lower parallelization on

I have uploaded the attached patch to Ubuntu to add ppc64el to this list,
and the package now builds.
