A big thanks for building binary packages for hppa-hpux, powerpc-aix, 
sparc-solaris, and x86-mingw.  We really appreciate it!

>From http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/packageinfo?packageID=2541, I see 
the Fedora8 rpms are being built.  My guess is that the GCC internal 
compiler error is the same one that I reported earlier, just on the PPC 
What is interesting from the failed build log on PPC is that it occured 
when gcc compiles code generated by mlton-20061107.  My guess is that 
mlton 20061107 is currently unusable on PPC Fedora 6,7,8 (anywhere where 
the default gcc is 4.1.2-N for N >= 13), since such an arch doesn't have a 
native codegen to work around the buggy gcc.  I think you would find that 
you can't rebuild mlton 20061107 on those distributions either.

The changelog for gcc-4.1.2-19 (a Fedora7 update candidate) 
doesn't mention fixing the PRs above, so I presume it is still a bug
