Erm, but you seem to be. It's C-code! They didn't copy the PS3's PPC binary, they compiled a new one from the source code. Snes9x is designed to be platform independent and can be compiled for a wide range (all?) CPUs.

They didnt use the main line linux version because they are running without an OS. They compiled the Gamecube SNES9x GX branch with mods to the renderer for the 360 GPU to be a stand alone application, it even fecking says so on their webpage!
