This code has been checked into the public Kaffe CVS repository.
You'll have to reconfigure (see FAQ/FAQ.xprofiling) to use it.  You
can get more information from the Janos Kaffe page:

This profiler, Xprof, works like gprof; it generates a statistical
sample-based profile of time spent in C and Java code.  Xprof
complements the pre-existing Kaffe profiler which is precise, but only
measures Java code.  Xprof also requires GNU gprof to generate
human-readable output.

Xprof currently only works on Linux and FreeBSD x86 boxes when using
the unix-jthreads threading system in Kaffe.
