In Python/ceval.c is following line:

#if defined(__ppc__) /* <- Don't know if this is the correct symbol; this
                           section should work for GCC on any PowerPC
                           platform, irrespective of OS.
                           POWER?  Who knows :-) */

which seems wrong and aborts the build on powerpc. Changing it to __powerpc__ fixes it for me.

The following output of gcc confirms it:

$ gcc -dM -E -x c /tmp/foo.c  | grep powerpc
#define __powerpc__ 1
#define __powerpc 1
#define powerpc 1

Whereas there are no defines containing "ppc"
