Try out the new 2.6.12 and comment, i think i disabled PM72 because it failed
to build or something.

Nope, power3/4 is going away, see other email.

there is explicit instructions on how to do that, but right now you just need
to install the ubuntu glibc and gcc-4.0 packages, and everythign should be
fine. I hope the debian toolchain guys get their act together pretty soon, and
we should get a biarch compiler in august or so.

see http://people.debian.org/~luther/ppc64/PPC64.README for details.

(installer stuff is broken and needs to be fixed though).
