Hi Dalibor,

For the time being, regression against rc1 looks ok for both m68k/
linux or netbsd, and ia32/netbsd. Testing for sh3/linux (or possibly
netbsd) will be done after proc_self_maps modification.

Of course if we can make more sofisticate solutions for that, I am
very happy. I'm looking forward about that.

My first intention is to update 'rt.jar' issue to reflect latest
situation, but then I noticed if our default class lib compilation
environment becomes to use jikes, we need not native kaffe for cross
compilation, which makes the document much simpler ;-)

Dan Kegel's crosstools description should be helpful for people who
are not so familiar with cross compiling. By the way, have you tried
to use these tools? As far as I am concerned, I prefer to build them
from scratch... Of course, for netbsd, I use cross compilation tools
supplied as default. I think this is another good reason why netbsd is
THE os for software developers ;-)
