PPC64 virtual machine



I've gotten GCL to build successfully in Rawhide on i386 and x86_64
platforms.  However, it segfaulted on PPC64.

Before I ExcludeArch the ppc platforms, I would like to try to
diagnose the problem.  My first thought was to create a virtual PPC64
machine.  So I downloaded the latest Rawhide boot.iso and fired up
virt-manager.  After configuring the machine, attempting to boot
produces this output on the console:

Google shows a lot of people complaining about the same problem, but
no solutions; e.g.:

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=502418
http://www.archivum.info/qemu-devel nongnu org/2008-09/msg01672.html

So does anybody know how to create a virtual PPC64 machine?  Failing
that, does anybody have any suggestions for me on how to diagnose the
GCL segfault?  Failing that, I'll have to ExcludeArch, I guess.
Thanks,
