NativePlatform support missing for linux_ppc64le

I’m looking into using Gradle to handle our native code compilation for a product that runs on both x86_64 and the new ppc64le (POWER8).

I’ve noticed when looking at the source of org.gradle.nativeplatform.platform.internal.NativePlatforms, that ppc64le is missing.

Does Gradle ever plan to support this Architecture?

Is there a workaround I can do get Gradle. 2.10 or 2.11 to support this, or do I have to wait until 2.12+ comes around and the feature gets dropped?
