Strip debugging symbols on everything
Consider using --strip-all on executables
Delete man and info pages
Delete unpacked sources
Delete source tarballs
Delete all software non-essential to running (i.e. gcc, binutils)

As for building on the ppc platform, you'll need a different bootloader 
than grub depending on if you're running a new world mac or an old world 
mac. There might be other things to, but you'd have to wait until one of 
the ppc builders responds, as I don't build for ppc.
