Ahah, I think I see what you mean.  As it stands now, though, -Dunix
gets defined irregardless of -ansi; this does not happen on x86,  And I
can not see it coming from CPP_OS_LINUX_SPEC, which explicitly marks
them as %{!ansi}.  I think that perhaps I need to dig a little deeper
to figure out what the powerpc predefines are supposed to be; they seem
to have gotten out of sync with other architectures at some point.

In the mean time, my patch is correct for at least the -Asystem()
stuff, which is what I most wanted to accomplish.
