Dear George Redivo,

I think Peter added || BR2_powerpc in ola/Config.in. The ola package
itself does not have any architecture dependency, it only has such
dependencies because it selects protobuf. So if protobuf now supports
PowerPC, then it should also be possible to build Ola.

And anyway, the error reported by Peter occurred during the build of
protobuf itself, so Ola is not relevant here.

Just do:

$ cat > .config <<EOF

and then:

$ make olddefconfig
$ make

As explained by Peter.
