"13 July 2009 Th: ppc and athlon unmaintained

ppc and athlon architectures in PLD Th line will become officialy deprecated 
at the end of July 2009 and moved out of official directory at PLD ftp server. 
Users of athlon arch are asked to switch to i686. ppc fate is unknown (there 
is a chance of keeping ppc alive in form of unofficial branch)."

- athlon arch provides almost no gain over i686
- lack of fast ppc server acting as builder (current one is slow and breaks 
too often) and, what is more important, lack of developer power to handle ppc
