It's a good news, since no one else has reported the port
to NEXTSTEP based on kaffe-1.0.

If HelloWorldApp works, main part of threading system should
work. If you can figure out which tests fail, it may help.
If 'most of other' means thread group related test, it should
come from alignment problem which I've once encountered for
m68k/sunos4 and m68k/netbsd1.

Anyway, it is better to use the latest snap.
