I didn't mention it earlier but you'll have to build libojc2 using
"-integrated-as", because "gas" (which is the default) fails on ppc.
I do this before building libobjc2 :

export CC='clang -integrated-as'
export CXX='clang++ -integrated-as'

I do. In fact my plan was to do such a guide for ppc (doesn't exist
yet), but I'm stuck for now because of libobjc2. 
Maybe you could help debugging the issue I pointed before for ppc. I

Moreover, David Chisnall was asking for help to write the missing ppc
assembly files in libobjc2 (this causes some tests no to build), but I
can't help.
