This is the great news for me! After I changed to use ecj for all
platforms, the regression testing itself took more than 51 hours
on m68k (Mac-IIci, netbsd) :-< For the next weekly regression test,
I can see whether things becomes better or not.

The auto detection itself is welcome, but still I want to have
explicit way to specify which compiler is my preference. Since
I still use jikes for some other staff, but when making regression
test of kaffe I need to use ecj (jikes does not like classpath-0.96.1).
