Get core IPC building on mac-ppc
In order to get multi-process jetpack working on all our tier-1 platforms, we need to support IPC on mac-ppc. cjones says we can fall back on NSPR for slow-but-correct primitives. I'll file a separate bug on --enable-ipcplugins, since we still don't want that on mac-ppc.
Comment on attachment 443502 [details] [diff] [review] Allow building ipc/chromium on PPC, enable MOZ_IPC for mac/ppc. God that's ugly, let's hope somebody cares enough to fix it better!

Before someone does, I challenge him/her to demonstrate a worthwhile perf gain (would be easy to test, just turn on the mutex impl rather than CPU atomics on a platform with a good impl). I personally doubt it's noticeable in our usage of chromium. Pushed for e10s-tryserver action http://hg.mozilla.org/projects/electrolysis/rev/76eb99fc5ecd
