Ok, but this is not easily done.

Yes. But before that ppcboot.c and kickstart.s should be improved to pass
all the necessary boot-arguments to the kernel.
I have already something finished, quite similar to the 68k loadbsd program,
which passes all the arguments in registers (r22-r31 in my case). I can send
you my working gobsdppc bootloader source for reference, if you like.
BTW, does port-amigappc still exist?
