I'd hope Debian can just
ln -sf libgfortran.so.5 libgfortran.so.6
as their libgfortran6 package for non-ppc64le and make it depend on
libgfortran5 if they really want to do something and GCC itself doesn't need
to care, except for libgfortran/Makefile.in which would need to adjust
`grep -v '^\#' $(srcdir)/libtool-version`
to conditionally (for ppc64le only) sed 's/^5:/6:/' in it).
