Hi Jack,
 	I never managed to successfully build llvm29 on powerpc-darwin8, 
after running into some build issues, and having filed bug 9958, I got the 
impression of ppc-darwin being "not supported", so I didn't put much more 
effort into it back then.  However llvm28 did build, and I still have 
it installed and hidden away.  (It looks like *someone* runs ppc-darwin 
a buildbot, but not for darwin8.)  Knowing what I've learned so far, the 
effort would be similar, perhaps even duplicate to just trying to fix 
things directly with g++-4.0.1.  Time will tell, I suppose.
