Hmm, sounds good. How about splitting the defines though?


"-D_ARCH_PPC -D__powerpc__  -D__powerpc -D__PPC__ -D__PPC -Acpu=powerpc  \

#define CPP_CPU_SPEC \
"%{!mcpu*: \
  %{mpower: %{!mpower2: -D_ARCH_PWR -D__power__}} \
  %{mpower2: -D_ARCH_PWR2 -D__power__ -D__power2__} \
  %{mpowerpc: %{cpp_cpu_powerpc_spec}} \
%{mcpu=603:  -D__PPC603__  %{cpp_cpu_powerpc_spec}} \
%{mcpu=740:  -D__PPC740__  %{cpp_cpu_powerpc_spec}} \
%{mcpu=860:  -D__PPC860__  -D_SOFT_FLOAT %{cpp_cpu_powerpc_spec}} \

I think it's safe to completely kill -Dpowerpc and -DPPC, I've never seen 
sources using them, they all seem to use the variants with underscores.

Now, I no longer remember all the implications of using CPP_*_SPEC vs. 
CPP_PREDEFINES, but now that we have a real cpp binary that always reads the 
specs file, most of the problems of the old days should be gone.

I'm a little bit unsure about the 'cpp -undef' which currently only leaves 
-D_ARCH_PPC defined of all the CPU defines. I guess CPU_*_SPEC will change 
behaviour here, but it seems like we want this :-).
