although on the long run we need to tackle 1.5 issues, I'd procrastinate  
that to 1.1.9 and have 1.1.8 out with our current stuff, at the expense of  
not having an up-to-date classpath.

Still, I don't know about jikes and kjc either. Do you think egcj would be  
fast? how is it memory consumption? Is it maybe able to compile claspath  
using split compilation? These could be intresting things to continue  
native builds on our aging test platforms (that is - my boxen)
