Yes.  Chad Netzer has packaged a source rpm that builds for LinuxPPC
without a problem.  There are some pitfalls to look out for though.
LinuxPPC uses some RedHat admin tools that are written in Python and
which produce run-time syntax warnings (or maybe failures) if you
upgrade to Python 1.52 without also fixing them.  Your best bet is
to go to his web site at <> then
read the instructions there about upgrading netcfg and pythonlib at
the same time you remove and replace the LinuxPPC python 1.51 packages
with his.
