Subject: any one managed to compile and run xz-5.0.8 or xz-5.2.3 ?


any one managed to compile and run xz with musl on ppc target ?
i've managed to compile and run "xz --version" on i486 and arm targets, 
but not on ppc target. i've tried gcc-3.4.5 and gcc-4.1.2.
gcc-3.4.5 version simply hangs, while gcc-4.1.2 version seg faults --
with seg fault, i can at least use gdb to get some info out. i do not know 
how to use gdb to trace a hanged program. anyway, this is the output for 
gcc-4.1.2 compiled version. (xz-5.0.8):

gdb src/xz/xz
