I was just curious if there are plans to support the ppcle64 architecture? With the advancement of OpenPOWER as well as the falling cost of Power9, I think everyone's favourite scanning tool should be available on all "major" platforms. Many Linux distributions support this platform, and it would be nice to see more software adopt a multi-architecture support model.

Thanks for your interest! We don't have any plans regarding any specific architectures. Have you tried to build for ppcle64? What issues do you encounter? We are willing to address specific issues to improve support, but there's not a lot we can do based on the information here.

I'll attempt to build the x86 version from source and get back to you on that. If it compiles and runs just fine then I'll report that here too.

I feel that I must point out: there is no "x86 version" of Nmap. The source builds successfully on many different architectures, as evidenced by the long list of arch-specific packages of Nmap from Debian: https://packages.debian.org/sid/nmap#pdownload

If you do get Nmap to build, be sure to run make check to do some basic testing for runtime bugs.
