I am still off for the holidays but I am betting that you configured for
the "generic name" for the BSP family.  You will need to configure for
a specific BSP variant.  The BSP variants for this BSP family on the head


I don't know the specifics of the individual boards but can almost guarantee
that you will be adding a new variant.

The build system didn't notice that you configured an unavailable BSP. That
should have been an error but wasn't.

Then it took the fact that there were no BSPs in the list of valid ones to
configure to indicate that all PowerPC BSPs should be built.

and then start to add your own variant.
