broken virt packages: openbios-ppc

The absence of the package: openbios-ppc
breaks all of the others.  None of the emulators will install other than 
qemu-system-x86-0.14.0-2.fc15.x86_64 and 

Even though the x86_64 is installed, and appears in 'virsh capabilities' 
it cannot launch because other pieces are missing from the install.

Symptoms are the same as when the binaries were moved a year or so ago:

virt-install --noreboot --hvm --virt-type=kvm --import --name=f15-basic 
--ram=1024 --vcpus=1 --arch=x86_64 --os-type=linux --os-variant=fedora14 
--network=bridge=br0,model=virtio --vnc --vnclisten= 
--noautoconsole --wait=-1


ERROR    No domains available for virt type 'hvm', arch 'x86_64', domain 
type 'kvm'

All attempts to start a qemu-kvm 64 bit fail this same way.

It is my guess that the package: qemu-launcher is the missing link.
