the issue is most probably in libpcre2 or Qt5Core

*splutter* but... but... wow! that's amazing.  pcre2 contains a JIT assembly compiler simply for the purposes of generating highly optimised regular _expression_ parsing.

chances are then that an instruction was added which is assumed to exist in OpenPOWER v3.0 but is not present in v2.06 (etc)

a cursory scan shows no evidence of the use of VSX there.
