Using Josh's patch below:
produces a working sbcl on OpenBSD/PPC 4.7.
I've still not gotten back to the float test oddities yet.

I cleaned up and did some quick testing of my old PPC branch, it
doesn't look hugely different than your changes. The most significant
change would probably be the address space locations. I don't remember
the exact reason I used the addresses I did, but I remember being
concerned that someone might build a kernel with MAXDSIZ bumped up to
1GB like it is on i386.
Here's a diff of my changes against 220.127.116.11:
There are several dynamic-extend test failures which I don't remember
from before, I had to disable one of them to avoid dropping into the
debugger during the test run. The failing timer tests are normal for
Finished running tests.
