Builds but segfaults as soon as its run.

Not sure.

Again, not sure. From the interest in the ghc powerpc bugs I think
I'm the only only person even running it. 

I've been trying to fix the ghci issue for a while, but I've been
too busy and debugging segfaults in ghc is too hard. Furthermore
while trying to follow GHC head I find it breaks on powerpc every
couple of months. I'm having trouble even just keeping up with fixing
the new breakage let alone the old stuff.
