I am unable to build databases/db48 and db6 on FreeBSD 9.2 powerpc64.  
I've tried with the default gcc, gcc4.8 and gcc 4.9. They all result in 
the same problem:

./libtool --mode=compile g++49 -c -I. -I./../dist/.. -D_THREAD_SAFE -O2 
-pipe -O3 -maltivec -mcpu=G5 -fno-strict-aliasing 
libtool: compile:  g++49 -c -I. -I./../dist/.. -D_THREAD_SAFE -O2 -pipe 
-O3 -maltivec -mcpu=G5 -fno-strict-aliasing
