Jeremy and Ben, thanks for chasing down this fix.  I've gone ahead and
applied it to our Precise git repo and it should be available in the
next upload.

Adam, given the above issue is now resolved for you.  I would like to

us to reinstate the non-smp PowerPC flavor, we will proceed with the
alternative solution as outlined in [1].
