In 4.1 feature request: https://www.libreoffice.org/download/4-1-new-features-and-fixes there is info: "Support for Mac OS X for PowerPC has been dropped." which is OK.

But on system requirements web site: https://www.libreoffice.org/download/system-requirements/ in Macintosh section there is still listed "Intel or PowerPC processor" as supported platform. PowerPC is not supported in 4.1. There should probably be info that PowerPC is not supported and users interested in using LibreOffice on PowerPC should use older version of LibreOffice 3.6.x or 4.0.x.

Yep, system requirements need to be updated...
