Hi Ben,
I don't know...
The original issue was failing builds in LLP64 branch (like
Build were failing because vmCallback.h uses sqIntptr_t.
Since this file is only used in *abicc.c, it's enough to just invert the
order of include files so that sqIntptr_t is already defined.

What about ppc?
- it does not include vmCallback.h (are callback suppported on ppc?)
- there is no ppc automated build set on travis/appveyor
- I can't test it myself

So I don't think there's an LLP64 related issue.
The issue is more about the fact that ppc support will be roting fast in
those conditions.
