1) Use "set debug remote 2" and see what exactly happen when you issue
   your "target remote ..." command.

2) If this does not give you the indication of what is going wrong,
   use tcpdump to verify what is really going on between gdb and your stub.

BTW, this code is not particular to powerpc and it works everywhere else.
