Simply configure with --host=powerpc-linux.  Then run configure
separately in the gdbserver directory if it did not get done, and make.

Note that to do that first step $CC must be a cross compiler.

Also note that PPC support for gdbserver is not currently available,
and may go in in a few days depending on some other factors.
