[Buildroot] pciutils-2.2.6 fails to build for powerpc 405

For powerpc, we had to resort to building the kernel separate from
buildroot and then install it into the staging area.  It is a bit of a
hack.  I think that with kernel 2.6.24, the ppc stuff has mostly been
migrated to powerpc (at least I think the 4xx family has migrated).
This means that soon we should see much better powerpc architecture
support in projects like buildroot for the kernel.  I have found that
most packages I have used in buildroot have cross compiled OK (sometimes
with the odd bit of shoe horn work)

A while back I tried to build a 823 system. I couldn't get the kernel to
compile. The kernel has both ppc and powerpc trees - which one are you
using for the 405? Do you have any idea why there are two and what is
the important difference?

Thanks, Steve
