Reorganize PPC defines.  Distinguish PPC, PPC64 and PPC32.
PPC should guard code needed on PPC regardless of word size.
PPC32 and PPC64 should guard code needed in the 64-bit or
the 32-bit port.

We don't use 3 architecture designators on other platforms to distinguish between "common", 32-bit and 64-bit, so why do we need to do so for PPC ? The normal approach would be to add _LP64=1 specific ifdefs within an architectural ifdef.
