Note that this feature on Mono caused problems when a Mono binary built 
on a 2.6 kernel (by my friendly neighborhood Debian packager) was 
deployed on an older kernel (like mine). Mono added a 
--enable-sigaltstack=no (IIRC) option that distributors are supposed to 
use to cope with this.

(In Mono's case, the end result was that you got segfaults instead of 
NullPointerExceptions, which is bad ;) )

Is this same thing going to happen to Kaffe, and if so, would a similar 
solution be in order?
