gzdoom 3.7.x won't compile under the ppc64le arch

Greetings.

gdoom 3.7.x don't compile under ppc64(le) architecture; it seems that the cause is asmjit not supporting such arch.

# error "[asmjit] Couldn't determine the target's calling convention."

My answer to this one is the same as the other exotic platforms with similar errors:

I don't own the hardware or software to test this. I am also not interested in acquiring it. It requires active involvement from developers using those platforms to fix these issues.

For anyone interested in creating a PR, two things needs to be done:

1) Improve CMakeLists.txt to not build/include asmjit or the jit_*.cpp files on architectures that aren't compatible.
2) Add empty stubs or some #ifdefs that makes it not call the JIT compiler code (essentially the linker errors that appear when the jit files aren't included). There is already code for x86 redirecting execution to the VM, so relatively speaking not much code needs to be added.

I cannot test this as well. Although, I will try to exclude JIT related code from all targets except Intel x64.

This is probably the best way to handle it to be honest. Just do a blanket exclusion, since the system only supports one architecture anyway, and that's unlikely to change in the immediate future.

Should be fixed in 8892cb6.

I was able to compile and test the engine in the ppc64le hardware with those changes and it works perfectly. Yeah, the issue has been fixed :-)

Thank you, everyone!
