You've been emailing this request to numerous projects quite obviouisly (since
I've got the request several times for different softwares I maintain) and
I've repeatedly asked questions back to which you never respond.

But since other people may not have seen them, I'll repeat myself:

Why do you need a new release for this arch? It's not like you *have to* build
from our tarball, you can easily just re-run the necessary autotools yourself
and then build and it'll work.

The amount of people in the world who run ppc64le platforms and download the
latest libssh2 tarball from our site and then get confused by the lack of
support for it has to be diminishingly small.

I intend to use automake 1.14+ when I build the next release of libssh2. I
don't intend to hurry up that process due to ppc64le demands.
