 wrote most of the code with the port in mind, there are several places
 that will need work). If it is running as a 32 bit app, we'd like more
 information, like the dump of running mcs with mono -v -v mcs.exe ...
 You may want to try with simpler files, to see if it can compile
 those, too. Or try running make test in mono/mono/tests (maybe with
 the tests compiled on a x86 or ppc32 box).

+Our userspace is 32-bit only. 
+I did some testing on different CPUs, and the result is that the 
+only CPU without problems is the G4. On G5 (32-bit kernel) and 
+Power4+ (64-bit kernel) the error described above occurs. On G3 and 
+603r mono SIGILLs a little later, running the generics compiler; 
+here the problem vanishes when running mono in gdb or with "-v -v". 
+Smells like cache incoherency.
