So it doesn't get built on PPC by default yet. Define your own list of
drivers to build in host.def.

It should work. If your CVS tree is older than a week you should update
again, there have been a couple endianness fixes in the nv driver.

I use video=riva:1152x864@70,font:SUN12x22 on my i386 box. But are you

that not even benh's tree contained them...
