Sorry, guess I have to disappoint you.
The included r128 driver is only for Rage128 (and maybe Pro).
And the mach64 (or whatever the driver for the Mach family is called) driver
is not accelerated yet, the XFree86 ATI maintainer will add that after the
3.9.18 snapshot, so it should be in the 4.0 release.
The remark about "all acceleration" was only about the glint driver on Amigas.

Provided the binary works, I can try to build the mach64 (and other?) drivers
for testing. It's likely though that they'll have at least endianness problems
on PPC, unfortunately most drivers even still assume PC/VGA-hardware.
