 - There are no powerpc machines currently online at *.FreeBSD.org.

 - The powerpc machines that we run on are far slower than the tinderbox

 - Even if we had powerpc machines available, and could deal with the
   time-lag for world builds, what then about archs with no native
   machines available (e.g. MIPS)?

Cross compilation is needed in this case.
