There is certainly no JIT support in the standard distributions
or CVS of kaffe.  Someone on the "outside" may have done
one that was never checked-in, I suppose.  The architectures
with current JIT support are ARM, x86, 68K, MIPS, and Sparc.
Mind you, that doesn't necessarily mean that all of those
actually *work* on a given day ;-).

Provides a readable description of what you'd
have to do to get JIT support working for a
new architecture such as SH.  Given that, and
the existence of other RISC examples (ARM, MIPS),
it should be possible, if not exactly easy, to do a port.
