Yeah, my (and David Daney's) fixes are in GCC CVS right now, but note
that it probably only has support (at least, support for closures) on
the O32 ABI. I don't know how well calling works on N32 or N64, but it
is presumably ok.

Does Kaffe use calls only, or closures? If it is only calls, then MIPS
support should be pretty good for any ABI.
