SPARC: some success

I have found out (broadly) what the Kaffe/SPARC problem is.

The only working configuation of engine and threading subsystem I can
get is interpreter/p-threads.

Configuring with either jtheads or jit causes kaffe to not load
Klasses and fail with the message:

  Illegal Instruction

I hope this is enough information for someone to fix the problem...
in the mean time I can use the interpreter and pthreads (it'll be an
interesting test since I intend to run Paperclips on it).
