I had kaffe JIT3 95% working with MIPS after hacking up the 1.0.7 
source base back in 2002.  It failed 6-8 regression tests, but ran well
enough to handle the embedded CaffeineMark benchmarks.  Then 1.1.0
came out, which was a huge step backwards for non-x86 JIT3, and 
after beating my head against it for a week or two, I gave up.  I was
able to determine that incomplete internal data structures containing
null pointers were being used, but couldn't figure out why, and whoever
maintained JIT3 apparently couldn't care less about non-PC platforms.
