mode32 is only valid on PowerPCs (as opposed to Intel Macs), only 
necessary if you're running 32-bit MacOS X on a 64-bit PPC CPU, and 
MacOS X on PPC implies <= 10.5[.8] (Darwin 9 or earlier).

So that should probably read powerpc*-apple-darwin{8,9}* or similar, as 
an /additional/ entry.

(/GMP's/ config.guess doesn't return powerpc64-* but a more specific CPU 
type for a couple of 64-bit PowerPC CPUs, in contrast to FSF's 
config.guess, as far as I know.)

He could install Linux on it...
