I cheated, I hacked the Makefile of the libavcodec/ subdir to use a cvs
gcc and even that one ICEs if you pass '-g', so I had to disable that
too:

Well, I'm not very familiar with the PowerPC family of processors yet,
will the g5 have a different/improved altivec instruction set? Is it
still called altivec then? In this case -g4 would make more sense. I'm
also still unsure what will be the best -mcpu and -march flags for the
G4s (although I doubt it will make much of a difference).
