Actually, I was thinking about this.  If you point CC=gcc64, then,  
config.guess should return powerpc64.  If you point it at a 32-bit  
default, config.guess can return powerpc.  I think this would be  
safe, as very, very few people will have a 64 bit default compiler,  
and those that do, want the next one to be as well.

You can notice this by compiling void *p  = 0; and seeing it it is 32  
or 64 bits.

I'd Ok that type of change, if anyone wants to do that.
