First, know that only some APIs are available to 64 bit applications, see:

Specifically, only the APIs in System.framework and Accelerate.framework

Have you tried simply passing "-arch ppc64" in the CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS?

Maybe as a test you should try building a 64bit 'hello world' with
cmake, to be sure cmake is up to the task.
