Talking about that, it would be interesting to have Kaffe's lib directory
be $(libdir)/kaffe/<Khost_cpu>/ instead of $(libdir)/kaffe/ as it is
currently the case. That way, the -ia32 feature (to run the ia32 version
of kaffe) could work out of the box without having the distributor to mess
with overriding that variable. ;-)

Random thoughts:

1) Could someone with an Alpha please try the JIT compiler? It doesn't
appear to work according to what someone reported to me.

2) Is release date still expected within one week from now? I wonder if it 
wouldn't be better to have some public beta or prerelease snapshot first. 
That way, a wider audience could try it out, I hope.
