PGE trigger a "Segmentation fault" on ppc

Patch status: Platform: linux


There is a problem by using Parrot on the ppc architecture. It will be triggered by building Rakudo or Pynie on ppc. Here are the error messages to show the problem:

The error message where the build of Rakudo stops on ppc is:

+ make /usr/bin/parrot /usr/lib/parrot/1.4.0/library/PGE/Perl6Grammar.pbc \

--output=src/gen_grammar.pir --encoding=utf8 \ src/parser/grammar.pg src/parser/grammar-oper.pg

make: *** [src/gen_grammar.pir] Segmentation fault error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.SWs6bb (%build)

Also only on ppc a build of pynie fails with a simular error:

+ ./setup.py build running build /usr/bin/parrot /usr/lib//parrot/1.4.0/library/PGE/Perl6Grammar.pbc --output=include/gen_grammar.pir Grammar/Grammar.pg error: command '/usr/bin/parrot' terminated by signal 11 error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.0zM1GQ (%build) RPM build errors:

Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.0zM1GQ (%build)

I hope I will get access to a ppc host to be able to give backtrace information.
