As powerpc is a release architecture, this bug is RC.

I tried running vlc on partch. It managed to get further, but then
segfaulted inside QT so it's probably a separate issue. I also had to
run it in xvfb so it probably gets different results.

Specifically what powerpc hardware do you have? Could you run vlc within
gdb to determine which instruction it SIGILLs on (try 'layout asm')?

Can a powerpc porter help here?
