Hi!

I finally found some time to clean-up my work. This patch is for
core-updates branch, and allows bootstrap tarball generation by

guix build --target=powerpc-linux-gnu bootstrap-tarballs

I think the best way to proceed is integrate this onto core-updates
(once reviewed & approved), then generate a bootstrap binaries on hydra,
making them available for download on the bootstrap binaries URL. At
that point I can update the rest of the powerpc-linux-gnu patches (which
use this binaries) with the correct hashes, and send them to the list.

As Ludo suggested, I am also preparing a tutorial/blog on the porting
process.

Does anyone know if Carlos ever produced a tutorial/blog post on how he did 
this? I'd like to port Guix to my Apple Aluminum PowerBook G4 for 
freedom/knowledge sake but the documentation that I've read, 
http://guix.gnu.org/manual/devel/en/html_node/Porting.html#Porting and 
http://guix.gnu.org/manual/devel/en/html_node/Preparing-to-Use-the-Bootstrap-Binaries.html#Building-the-Bootstrap-Binaries
 has left me with more questions than answers.

Thank you,

Scott
