Guilin, could you try running 'make check VERBOSE=1'
in order to see what kaffe is doing when it hangs? It
could hang on the test compilation step for example.

For me, on Sun OS 5.8 on sparc the latest version from
CVS passes make check without hanging anywhere. I get
7 test failures with jit:
> ls -1 *.fail

(this is a crash)
(another crash)
(another crash. occurs occasionally)
(Another crash)

I've attached the *.fail files and I could provide
stack traces, if anyone is interested in debugging the
threading/locking issues.

Are you on i386 or on a sparc?

I fixed a regression test last summer but that's about
it ;) Guilin, it would be great if you could work with
us on fixing the remaining issues on Solaris.
