A 5v PPS signal with more than 125ma drive?
 Not likely from a normal TTL chip.

100 PC RS232 serial ports tied together,
 fed from one PPS driver?

 I'd think you would have a lot of stray ground currents
  running around.

  Even if they were isolated RS422/485 receivers,
   100 in parallel, fed from one PPS driver,
   seems like it would be problem prone.
