Basically, there is a lot of regression tests that fail on ia64, and I'd 
appreciate if someone with access to an ia64 box could try figuring out 
what's going wrong. Gwenole Beauchesne might also have patches for ia64 
in his mandrake packages of kaffe that haven't been merged in.

For the brave souls, there is also a JIT for ia64 that waits for someone 
to merge it in.

It all comes down to have more developers on that platform. Feel free to 
send patches, if you're not tainted i.e. haven't looked at Sun's 
sources, decompiled their stuff, etc. ;)
