Did the uClibc really compiled/work for powerpc before? The 'TARGET_i386=y' is set in that common uClibc cnfig file.

I tried  building the buildroot environment for x86-64 using the same as the i386 configuration. Unfortunatley the uClibc version that's being downloaded for i386 does not compile for x86-64 due to a missing file in an x86-64 directory, so I switched it to use a snapshot of a given date.
