Yes, but "make snapshot"/"make release"/" -R ..." is known not to
work yet, because many tools for building stuff in distrib/ are still not
set up to be cross-capable.  Only "make build" is known to work correctly on
new toolchain systems.

(For instance, installboot and family need to be made into proper host
tools, and these utilities need to make use of makefs, etc.  We're still
working on that part.  :)

BTW, you can omit "-a powerpc" there as a shortcut; it's deduced
automatically from the "-m macppc".
