The Darwin8 and Darwin9 branches will still build a ppc slice by default. If you want to build trunk (Darwin10 support) for ppc, you can just override the ARCHS variable. In fact, you can override any of the settings like this (in case you want a different PREFIX, LIBRARY_SEARCH_PATHS, or whatever).
$ sudo xcodebuild install DSTROOT=/ ARCHS="i386 x86_64 ppc"
Note that Darwin10 + ppc support are untested. Please report back to the list if it works or not.

I'm hoping that you or whoever works on DarwinBuild will attempt to keep it as PPC compatible as possible, as I'm hoping it might still be possible to build a PPC Darwin from the open sources, despite the fact that PPC support has officially been dropped. Keeping DarwinBuild building fat (even on Snow Leopard) would be a great start.

I may backport critical changes to them, but mostly they will be static (and remain Makefile based). As usual I will take patches to keep them up to date. The primary focus will remain on trunk with the latest OS.
