I'm fairly sure that the root cause is that GENCGC is subtly broken on
PPC: if you turn on various sanity-checking bits in
src/runtime/gencgc.c they will detect issues during the build. Outside
PPC this does not happen.

Thank you. I elected to rewrite it in a manner that ignores the :LARGE
completely on PPC, just to avoid bouncing back and forth on this.
