I don't believe in a PPC build either.
The hardware base that would actually still be able to play UT well  
on a PPC machine is getting smaller every day and then you likely  
can't simply recompile it for PPC. You'd likely have to sort out  
endian issues, bitswapping and all that annoying stuff. I don't think  
it would pay off in the end.
