[kaffe] Slow Performance of Kaffe 1.1.4 running in PowerPC

I have tested running Kaffe 1.1.4 in MontaVista Linux on a PowerPC platform.

So far, it works fine, but the performance is far from satisfactory. We
mainly test Kaffe running the Tomcat 4.1.27.

Looking at the README of the Kaffe 1.1.4, it mentions that Kaffe only
supports "Interpreter", but not "just-in-time" for the PowerPC platform.
Is this why the performance is rather slow? Is there any reason why
Kaffe cannot support "just-in-time" for the PowerPC platform?

How could I speed up Kaffe on a PowerPC?

Thank you!

Best Regards,
Tony Cheung
