Mikael, most Linux apps port to most OpenBSD flavors. Probably much of the

tree could easily be converted to a prospective little-endian Power8 OpenBSD. 
The very popular
(in the IBM i world) Perzl-on-PASE effort is probably more difficult and less 
satisfactory than porting
the OpenBSD ports tree would be to a prospective little-endian Power8 OpenBSD.

One would hope that IBM would lend support and some engineering assistance to 
the OpenBSD project in
the event of a little-endian Power 8 OpenBSD port being planned.
