Hi Chu,

we are looking at new release tarball for distro to pick up of freeipmi.
We are looking at being able to point the pkg tarball to the distro such
that the pkg build in the distro build( that will obvious Little Endian
version of Power Linux) without further issues.

Currently available source tarball (freeipmi-1.3.4) on upstream uses the
libtool that does not have support for ppc64le arch and so the build
failed to generate the shared library.
So I am hoping you will use the alpha libtool and spin up a new version
of release tarball of "freeipmi" on upstream.
