I have some interesting news about jikes and netBSD/sparc jit.
I did dated checkouts even on days where it worked and I was puzzled.
Failures at everyside and I was about to give up. SOmeone maybe has read
my considerations on irc after hours and hours of kaffe reocmpilations.
I configured lately kaffe with --with-jikes to be faster. This works for
example on solaris or on NetBSD/ppc.
It also works on NetBSD/sparc with intrp. But not with JIT.
Configuring without that option and using
JAVAC = jikes
even today's HEAD compiles and does some regressions tests:
it says 10 fail, but I find:
10 of 144 tests failed
Please report to kaffe at kaffe.org
many regressions gave warnings during jikes compile...
This means also one interesting thing: I'd be very careful in making
JIKES the DEFAULT compiler.
