This is bug #69866.  It should have been closed ages ago.  All you need to do is
get rid of -fsigned-char in debian/rules.  It has worked flawlessly for me with
this fix (well, almost, see also bug #75231, but that's not PPC-specific :-).

So upstream is fine, but the Debian maintainer was trying to preempt bugs on
unsigned char platforms (PPC and ARM) but broke it in the process.
