missing ppc packages for compat-gcc-32

Description of problem:
Binaries missing for ppc (in devel)??
They seem to be lacking since
* Wed Jul 12 2006 Jesse Keating <email@example.com> - 3.2.3-55.fc5.1
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I don't have a ppc, but I have a dependency for some packages in
fedora extras (cernlib, patchy, paw), that are built with g77
and therefore depends on libf2c and the missing deps are
automatically found. I wanted to have a closer look at what
was wrong with compat-32-libf2c but it seems to have disappeared
from the ppc rpm download server, I cannot found them on
Steps to Reproduce:
There were no ExcludeArch's added, so it sounds just that the buildsystem messed
it up. I rebuilt it today, but not sure when it hits rawhide.
In any case, you should consider using gfortran to compile even Fortran 77 stuff,
it should these days subsume all the g77 features.
I have considered using gfortran since a long time (and submitted
some bugs there when it broke...), but there are still g77
regressions and missing intrinsics, for example the cernlib
still needs g77 for rshift and lshift.
I guess you allready know that regressions are listed there:
As long as all the bugs listed there and the intrinsics are not
fixed, gfortran cannot be used for all the fortran 77.
