Bug#437326: boinc-client: please support PS3 platform

Package: boinc-client
Version: 5.10.8-1
Severity: wishlist

It would be nice if the ppc boinc client could somehow let the user 
declare 'powerpc64-ps3-gnu-linux' when they're running linux on a PS3 
(assuming they know what they're doing ;)

I'm fairly convinced the way the binary hardcodes its platform at build 
time is broken by design as some machines can actually run code for 
different 'platforms', and that's probably a tendancy that will expand 
in the future, but heh...
