Anyway, what I'd wanted to know is if userland programs on ppc64 should be
compiled as 32bits or 64bits.

Does anyone know that ?

For openSUSE: 32 bit. If there is no special reason (like 64 bit because the
kernel is 64 bit and there's some strong dependency between the kernel and the
userland like 'crash', a tool to analyse kernel crash dumps).
