What was SDKMACHINE set to before?
Hey Richard, thanks for the quick response.

We did not have it set. It looks like this recent commit is what
changed things on us:

commit c74ec1dd7393b9dc7bec1a3ca2ed0a56fb18d8fb
Author: Ross Burton <>
Date:   Tue Dec 22 17:23:14 2020 +0000

    bitbake.conf: default SDKMACHINE to the build host architecture

Looks like I need to submit a patch to y'all to add a ppc64le.conf to
That would likely avoid the failures you're seeing, yes.

I really wish we had better support for ppc64le both for hosts and
targets and had people actively involved/maintaining the ppc support,
its in need of massive modernisation particularly on the target side.
