Which version of RTEMS are you using? rtems-4.6 should be able to handle
this situation.

All that should be required is to do is to run "bootstrap" after having
removed or added a BSP's directory.

In your case, 

cd c/src/lib/libbsp/powerpc

is supposed to do what you intend 

[The responsible file is 
c/src/lib/libbsp/<CPU>/acinclude.m4 which is used by autoconf and
aclocal when generating configure
bootstrap is supposed to rebuild this acinclude.m4
