It works fine here:

13:49:15 appel ~$ uname -a
Linux 2.2.17 #1 Wed Sep 6 01:05:43 CEST 2000 ppc unknown

Just wednesday I was asking around for more recent gcc powerpc .debs,
but gcc-2.95.2 was judged to be `quite stable' for powerpc, by the gcc
maintainer. Because there seemed to be no binaries available, I built
my own, get them at your own risk from:


13:52:33 appel ~$ gcc -v
Reading specs from /usr/lib/gcc-lib/powerpc-linux/2.95.3/specs
gcc version 2.95.3 19991030 (prerelease/franzo/20000625)

It would be nice to hear if the newer gcc fixes your problems.
