I managed to get oskit-mach booting. It seems that it depends on the
processor itself, but I'm not an expert. Well this is what was needed
to get it working:

How do I get the debugger symbols compiled in in oskit-mach. If I turn
on '--enable-debug' no '-g' flag is setted. I had to add the flags
manualy. I don't think this is the right way to do it.
