I am not sure what you mean by 32 bit PowerPC target? Yes, AIX defaults to building 32 bit applications, but 32 bit PowerPC processors are quite different (both Freescale processors and other PPC32 targets). And AIX does not support ELF, sdata, sdata2, etc. that are referenced in many of those testcases.

Ok, does this mean that there is no primary and secondary target in GCC that covers PowerPC Book E with ELF and EABI?

If I change something in this area is there at least a well known tertiary target?

GCC is used for a lot of Freescale products in the embedded systems market. What is necessary to make e.g. powerpc-unknown-eabi a secondary target?
