I think rhel7b1 has enough to cover us, although there are some (to me) puzzling omissions; boost-python.ppc and python-libs.ppc are there, but python.ppc and python-devel.ppc aren't.   I'm going to do a trial build of our lookaside third-party "stack" against el7b1 and see if anything else pops up.

I'll have a look at centos-build-reports and the bld-seven repo.

Thanks again,
