No, you should definitely port version 1.9.8, or preferably the current 
CVS version. Version 1.0.10 does not contain any PowerPC support at 
all. Since we are very close to releasing version 2.0, CVS is quite 
stable at the moment, so I would recommend you to use that one (it 
contains some extra fixes compared to 1.9.8, both on the PowerPC and 64 
bit fronts).

Good luck with the port!
