The triplet for "ppc64el" is powerpc64le-unknown-linux-gnu.  We already
have supported it in libgpg-error.

For cross building, please specify correct triplet for the host.  It
should be powerpc64le-unknown-linux-gnu when you build for ppc64le.
(Well, you should have cross compiler which supports
powerpc64le-unknown-linux-gnu beforehand, so, you should know the

Name of machine type (I mean the output of uname -m), CPU in the
triplet, architecture name for distribution may be different.
