By default objcopy only copies sections that have contents.  You can
arrange to copy .bss to your binary file with

objcopy -O binary --set-section-flags .bss=alloc,contents

You might find that your elf32-powerpc input file has more than one bss
section, for instance, you might have .bss and .sbss.  You need to
mention each bss section that you want included in a --set-section-flags
