Altivec problem seems to appear with Mac OS X 10.3. Version 10.2 fails
to mount it's root partition, I really need to understand why. I didn't
check any other version, but I noticed that OpenDarwin sometimes acts
like Mac OS X 10.2 and sometimes crashes, depending on the version.
Those problem as, I suppose, related to buggy OF properties.
