Can you tell us what operating system you're running?

Nigel Pearson has submitted about three dozen patches for getting the
frontend to compile and run on an OS X box, so most of what was in that
patch is probably in the current CVS release. There's one outstanding
big-endian patch, which is expected to go into CVS in the next few
You'll also have to edit your settings.pro file to turn on the
TARGET_ARCH_POWERPC flag. After seeing the patched settings.pro, it
should be pretty straightforward.
Aside from that, if you have problems with the latest CVS, please post
specifics to the list. I don't think there are many PPC folks here
right now, so any help and bug reports are appreciated.
