Doesn't Openswan already run on PowerPC? I had MandrakeLinux PPC with
FreeS/WAN running on an old iMac. Or is PPC64 a completely different

Or is 'optimized' the keyword here? I.e. is IBM looking for hand-crafted
PPC assembler routines? In that case they should sponsor the Linux kernel
CryptoAPI because it is used by Openswan, if I'm correct.
