powepc64 is about be a long-double-fcts=yes platform. I believe Dwayne 
submitted the patches for the powerpc64 long double support last week. 

This of course is dependent on a general solution to versioning the two 
sizes of long double within glibc. Jakub has proposed a mechanism/patch to 
do this but I believe this is still unresolved.
