I've got one of the original PPC mac minis. Sloooow. But it is nice to
have a little-endian machine to test on.

4.2.1 is the latest release, so that should definitely be a target.
GCC is important enough I'm willing to include 4.1. Likewise VC++ is so
widely used I'm willing to target both 8.0 and 7.1.
Maybe one more? Sun?
