This problem is caused by my patch which moved the addition of
-fno-strict-aliasing to CFLAGS into Config.mk. At the same time I *removed*
-fno-strict-aliasing from arch/{x86,powerpc,ia64}/Rules.mk. My assumption
was that everyone would simply add to the CFLAGS created by Config.mk and
xen/Rules.mk, just to add arch-specific extras.

I see you do not do this because you have a 'CFLAGS :=' in your
arch/powerpc/Rules.mk. So you need to do one of:
 1. Get rid of the 'CFLAGS :=' and simply adapt the generic CFLAGS.
 2. Add CFLAGS += -fno-strict-aliasing back into your Rules.mk.

Unless there is a good reason to do otherwise, (1) is the way to go.
