Yes, of course.

Currently the build for sparc-solaris (and all other platforms that have 
jit, but no jit3) fails because the jit engine doesn't have a function 
called resetConstants like the jit3 engine does.

What we could do would be
a) #ifdef the resetConstants call to only happen if defined TRANSLATOR 
and JIT3.
b) backport the resetConstants implementation to jit engine
c) provide a 'do-nothing' implementation of resetConstants for jit engine
d) separate the engine spefic bits of jni.c into jnisomething.c/h in 
engine directories.

I'd propose going with a) followed by c and d, if someone volunteers to 
do it. I could do step a) myself ;)
