Your patch compiles fine and results in the attached "ls -l" output  
in obj-ppc.

  (and "make run" does give an OpenBIOS prompt)

Your config file looks somewhat cleaner than my first attempt (no  
differentiation between host/target tools).
Are you sure that PearPC stuff should be included in the ppc config  
for qemu? Isn't PearPC an old abandoned ppc emulator unrelated to qemu?
And should we really enable PCI debugging?

Replacing my previous openbios-pearpc.elf file with the new one  
results in the same instruction error in qemu as before. So could you  
please advise us (on the qemu-devel list if you prefer :) what  
exactly to do with the output files to use them with qemu? I could  
mail you or post any required files if necessary.
