It wasn't that long before some SIGs started to test building on
cbs.centos.org (I like the Momentum !) .. and so that first issue was
found : CentOS Stream 9  ppc64le requires IBM Power 9, which we don't
have for builders for cbs.centos.org .. :

Error in <unknown> scriptlet in rpm package glibc-common
Fatal glibc error: CPU lacks ISA 3.00 support (POWER9 or later required)
warning: %transfiletriggerin(glib2-2.68.4-1.el9.ppc64le) scriptlet
failed, exit status 127

So that means that for now, we have to decide on what to do : SIGs can
request to build only for x86_64/aarch64 and let ppc64le aside and we
can try to see if there is a way to find an IBM Power 9 machine that we
can use for SIGs/cbs
