 Somewhat related to this mail, here's another wish I have:

Could we add a FAQ that briefly describes how your install tree should
look after you type gmake install.  This way, people can compare file
by file whether they have old libraries in their install tree.

I know that directory names and locations have changed: I remember
targets such share/kaffe/i386-freebsd2 or lib/ or libexec or whatever.
We (preferably you, Alexandre) need to document what a properly installed
prefix tree looks like so that people can check their installation against
what it ought to be before reporting problems.  Or if they report problems,
we'll simply point them at the FAQ.
Actually, a FAQ.LD_LIBRARY_PATH would be nice to have too.

Did the latest set of changes reintroduce the ability to load .so files yet?
