I don't know yet what the specific problem is, but objtool should work
fine in a cross-compiled environment. It needs to be compiled with the
host (powerpc) compiler, but then it needs to disassemble target (x86)
files. It worked fine before the bitsperlong.h files were merged.
I can try to take a deeper look at it tomorrow.
