Since BOINC 5.10 it is possible to declare an alternate platform name that the
client will use if there is no application available for the native platform.
It is currently only used for amd64. The native platform on amd64
is 'x86_64-pc-linux-gnu' and the alternate platform is 'i686-pc-linux-gnu'.
I assume that code compiled on a normal ppc64 can run on a PS3, but not the
other way round? If this is true clients compiled
for 'powerpc64-ps3-gnu-linux' should have the alternate
platform 'powerpc64-pc-linux-gnu' (or 'ppc64-linux-gnu' because this is the
official platform name for ppc64). But if I understand you correctly you want
that 'powerpc64-pc-linux-gnu' has 'powerpc64-ps3-gnu-linux' as alternate
platform. If all code compiled on a PS3 runs on ppc64 this would possible.
