Does altivec work with gcc 3.3.3 hammer?

I'm building  with -maltivec and -mabi=altivec but it does not seem to work
for simple programs.  For instance,

	printf("%vc",(vector unsigned char) {'h','e','l','l','o'});

Will print:


Here is how I am building:

	gcc -maltivec -mabi=altivec -mcpu=970 -mtune=970 testy.c
