I think we test each architecture with the compiler(s) before adding
them to the list. It is possible that either your gcc or your gfortran
does not support ppc64 or we are failing to recognize that it does. Or
we might've dropped support for it. I think David Cournapeau was the
last person to touch the architecture selection code in
