Hi Tony,

Good progress.

I am also trying to make linux (and possibly netbsd) version up to date.

Try JIT version first.

I have been working JIT3 for linux, and at least till 2002-11-02 version,
it can execute so many test programs if you compile it with some other
system. BUT, always it is slower than JIT. I have submitted this at that
time and no other guys are tackling this fact. If I remember correctly,
only Dalibar responded that 'on i386, JIT3 is faster than JIT'.

So of course, if you are more ambitious, you can fix problem for JIT3
and improve the performance at least as the same level as JIT, but
easier is to play with JIT for the time being.
