Hi, I've also tried out 1.1.0 on alpha linux machines. While kaffe builds fine,
running make check results in most of the tests crashing during the

and so on

warning: Hit heuristic-fence-post without finding
warning: enclosing function for address 0x120244d44
This warning occurs if you are debugging a function without any symbols
(for example, in a stripped executable).  In that case, you may wish to
increase the size of the search with the `set heuristic-fence-post' command.

Otherwise, you told GDB there was a function where there isn't one, or
(more likely) you have encountered a bug in GDB.

so it would be nice if any alpha developers could take a closer look.
