Looks like it had trouble loading the vesa driver.  Should that work on
ppc?  Maybe try specifying it to use the framebuffer or other driver?

I've not tried valgrind against X.  I would probably suggest the
standard approach for troubleshooting crash bugs - install debug symbols
for the server and drivers, and then obtain a full backtrace.  Then
examine pointers around the point of crash for endianness issues, not
being properly defined, etc.

When you get further along with the troubleshooting (like once you have
a backtrace), make sure to open a bug upstream with Xorg on it.
