I agree that it's quite hard for novices, especially
after the introduction of rebuildLib while generating
'kaffe'. Of course, I don't say this is the bad direction.

I will try to find out some way later but if there are
some chance to get idea from some other persons who is
doing cross-compiling it is a good help.

Anyway, before starting to attack this I want to fix
several faults (for super-h and m68k) introduced after
the release of 1.0.7. For your info, latest snap generates
13 FAILs in regression test (against only 2 FAILs in 1.0.7) :-<

# And of course jit3 support...
