I said up front this was a MacOS X/ppc package that I was providing as an
example that Zero worked on PowerPC (with a code base that supported
I'll repeat this once more. The code base is likely very close to
supporting FreeBSD/ppc using the Zero VM. The hard part is going to
be doing the bootstraping for the initial build. Here is a link to a
post that goes into some of the details on how you can accomplish this.
