Nothing currently as far as I know, but in the past there were several
people who successfully used Coda on 32-bit PowerPC machines.

It shouldn't be too hard to build from source. I'm guessing it will be
something similar to the following,

    Add to /etc/apt/sources.list,
	deb-src stable/

    apt-get update
    apt-get source lwp rpc2 rvm coda

    ( cd lwp-1.11 ; debuild -uc -us )
    dpkg -i liblwp2_1.11_powerpc.deb
    dpkg -i liblwp-dev_1.11_powerpc.deb

    ( cd rpc2-1.22 ; debuild -uc -us )
    dpkg -i librpc24_1.22_powerpc.deb
    dpkg -i librpc2-dev_1.22_powerpc.deb
    dpkg -i rpc2-tools_1.22_powerpc.deb

    ( cd rvm-1.9 ; debuild -uc -us )
    dpkg -i librvm1_1.9_powerpc.deb
    dpkg -i librvm-dev_1.9_powerpc.deb
    dpkg -i rvm-tools_1.9_powerpc.deb

    ( cd coda-6.0.6 ; debuild -uc -us )
