On second thought (and reading more carefully), the tset core is
probably not related - if sysinst dumped core, as appears to have been
the case, it should have left a sysinst core if it was going to leave
one at all.

The most likely cause (especially of SIGILL) in that case is probably
PPC exception handling bugs on some specific hardware rev. There have
been a lot of fixes since, but I think it would be best to leave the
PR open anyway, in case anyone else has a PowerMac 7600/132 and wants
to test.

I will take a look at tset in any event.
