On powerpc?  woody's xserver-xfree86 doesn't come with the nv driver on

I've been trying for a couple of weeks to get XFree86 to drive the
GeForce2 in my Powermac Cube, with only limited success.  The nv driver
is not built by default on ppc, and is in a state of fairly rapid
development right now.  I got the latest (as of a week or so ago) CVS
source and got it to build the nv driver on ppc, and it ran.  However,
trying to start the X server for a second time (i.e. start the X server,
shut it down, then start it again) crashed the machine.

It seems that the nvidia kernel patches are i386 only.  The Debian
packages claim to be, anyway.  Is this not the case?
