I'm afraid that Debian Wheezy and Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty) are too different. So 
Wheezy packages may not be used for Trusty. So far I have not thought about 
adding more platforms for Ubuntu distributions. However, if there will be 
interest, I might think about it - but probably only for the LTS versions.

Anyway, I was planning to add support for Debian Jessie, but "something has 
changed" and some binaries simply do not work with qemu-ppc-static. So in the 
current state I can not support Jessie on PowerPC. I do not know if the same 
is not the case with Ubuntu 14.04.
