Thanks a lot for testing!

That means it passes some tests, right? That's something ;)

I'm sorry, I'm rather unfamilar with both the jitter tests, and SPARC 
assembler. Would it be possible to poinpoint the change that broke the 
jit? That might help us find the real cause. Or if that doesn't work, to 
compare the build logs with some other sparc platform where the jit 
works for interesting differences in warnings?

That's all one can do without getting the hands dirty with the debugger, 
I fear, or going after the warnings one by one.
