There is not configuration files for powerpc/netbsd, could you send me
them (in private mail), I will commit them into CVS Tree.

Last March, with help of Carlos Valiente (I don't have PowerPC yet) I
fix callmethod_ppc.h for float arguments.  With GNU/Linux, Carlos was
unable to use libffi as many test-case failed but with callmethod_ppc.h
all tests passed.

You may try to use this version of sysdepCallmethod.
BTW, I'm looking for documentations about `Calling Convensions' on
PowerPC and various OS. (GNU/Linux seems to pass 8 float/double in
register where AIX pass 13).

I plan to write JIT for PowerPC (I will have a PowerPC in few weeks).
