Porting GHC to powerpc-unknown-linux

Following Donald Stewart efforts and Simon Marlow's new porting guide,
I made two attempts of getting GHC working on Linux/PowerPC.
I made a first attempt using cross-compiling from a Linux/i386 box. I
followed every instruction on the guide, but the compiler was unusable,
resulting in the following error message :
hc-6.0.1: internal error: stg_ap_v_ret
Please report this as a bug to email@example.com,
Don got the same message for his cross-compilation tests, so I decided
to stay on the same computer using the official build for Mac OS X.
I had to add -Onot -fvia-C to prelude/PrimOp_HC_OPTS in
ghc/compiler/Makefile to make GHC build. This failed on the RTS as said
in the guide, so I decided to go on.
But I was unable to build the libraries. I got a bunch of error message
like : "cpp0: unkown -smart flag", and it failed later at :
/compiler/ghc-inplace -H16m -O -fglasgow-exts -cpp -Iinclude -#include
HsBase.h -funbox-strict-fields -package-name base -O -H32m
- -keep-hc-files -c GHC/Base.lhs -o GHC/Base.o -ohi GHC/Base.hi
GHC/Base.hc:1111: only 1 arg to macro 'HP_CHK_NP' (2 expected)
I don't know what to try next...
