But abs can run with csup instead of cvsup. This works for x86_64; so chances
are that it might work for ppc, too.

In fact it does. A simple symlink has solved  the problem. I use abs from the x86  archlinux and already had
a lot of packages compile smoothly out-of-the-box from the x86 abs tree (i.e. the _entire_ gnome tree plus any conceivable extras :) Others compile and work with minor modifications of PKGBUILD. That is why I don't really see the reason to diverge significantly from the i686 distro.

Hope to get a working binary repo of all these packages in the next few days.

About the fam script, please take a closer look at it and you'll easily realize that is plainly wrong. And that package is in current, so I guess nobody noticed the error. I'm pretty sure the i686 version never had that bug :)

Still don't have any clue about the kernel issue. I was forced to include static xfs support in order to have root mounted properly and boot the system. I did the mkinitcpio myself at least five times and I'm pretty sure xfs support was included but still... kernel panic'ed. That could be a minor issue but I'd like to get it work just right :)
