thanks for the bug anaysis, Milos also told me that was the reason why 
kaffe 1.1.1 doesn't build on NetBSD. The EXCEPTIONFRAME macro call in 
jthread.c has been introduced in the JVMPI patch. It has only been used 
before in the signal.c files of threading subsystem implementations, and 
  it is defined away there for the interpreter case.

I'm not sure whether I should push it into the respecitve jthread.h 
files, or not. Tim, what do you think?

yep, build bugs are very annoying since they effectively prevent people 
working on support for smaller systems from participating in the 
develpement. when a configure run takes a few hours, having to fix build 
problems is probably not a great option ;)
